Thoughts from a Plane

After a grueling week, with lots of stress and little sleep, I flew back to NYC on Wedsneday night from Orlando, Florida. As the plane started lowering altitude, I looked out the window and saw something very similar to this:

And it occurred to me how much it resembled a computer circuit board up close.

I held in my breath in wonder, at the marvel of the repetitive nature of the world around us.

At the similarity at the core of things both enormous and microscopic… Of dendrites, and tree branches, and of vascular tissue of plants and waterways…

Pretty darn marvelous!

I’m glad I took that glance out the window to remind me of the wonder of our world.
