Nature Never Hurries


“Nature never hurries, yet everything is accomplished.” — Lao Tzu, Chineses Philosopher, 6th Century BC

Thank you Glen Lauder for sending beautiful nature photos recently with this Lao Tzu caption. The photo above is one that I took from Stewart Falls, Utah in 2009. I spent the better part of a day there, alone. Some of it was taking pictures of what amazingly grows in rocks. I think of it as an irrepressible spirit of life.

Some things can’t help but grow. Can’t not blossom. It is this way with human beings also. And with human beings in groups. I’ve seen it many times. And irrepressible life generated by the most simple interactions, that grows from even very hard places.
