I have irrational fears about moss, or rather I mean that it mega creeps me out. Walking on moss to me is like… chewing on a washcloth or scraping my nails on a chalkboard. But it’s still beautiful from afar!

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in & pray in, where nature may heal & give strength to body & soul.

There is so much beauty teaming in this photo. Goats are also just as cute in person as they seem in pictures…

Galaxy Garden
This Galaxy Garden is the world’s first large-scale, walk-through scale model of the Milky Way, mapped in living plants and flowers. Different plants represent stars, globular star clusters, and nebulae and are placed in their actual galactic locations. At the center of the garden is a fountain representing the black hole at the Milky Way’s heart. All the stars visible without lenses in Earth’s sky are one foot or less away from the Sun’s perch on a single leaf in the Galaxy Garden.

ghost orchid

“The plant is so rare because it is basically impossible to propagate. It has no leaves, does not depend on photosynthesis and does not manufacture its own food. Like the Lady slipper, it needs a specific fungus in close contact with its root system, which feeds it. The Ghost orchid never grows leaves, and will therefore always depend on the fungus for its nourishment. The Ghost orchid can live underground for years, without showing any external signs and will only bloom when all conditions are optimum. This explains why some orchid enthusiasts search for years and years just to have a glimpse of this elusive flower.” Via.

Promptly adding “Orchid Enthusiast” to my resume.

Sometimes I think that I am just a sensualist – that my music is about experiencing touch and sensation and being in awe of that kind of sensual experience. I think I also have a kind of obsession with beauty – that garbage can be beautiful, and an urban expressway can be a symbol of beauty; it is just a matter of perception.
