Nature

Nature’s intricate workings and mankind’s attempts to master them  intrigue me. Humans originate from nature, yet exploit it; trying to control it with dire consequences. Re-creating parts of nature lets me study their subject, discovering how a beehive functions, which insects feed on milkweed plants, or our planet’s location in the galaxy. Education is both part of the process. In learning to treat the planet with reverence and respect, we may – as a species – continue to survive.
