In response to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Patterns in Nature, I have been pondering patterns. In nature. Through the week, I peered through hedges, looked up towards the treetops, squinted at little critters.
It occured to me that I often try to make sense of the world by attempting to give form to a thought, to fashion a shape for an idea, to find sense in an event: a pattern. Which is why this pandemic still brings about anxiety – imperfect patterns of infection, of process, of resolution.
On these occasions, turning my attention to nature gives much respite and comfort. I think I will spend my time there. Safely distanced. With my mask on.
