I do so love watching the trees outside my house as they change throughout the year, they are a real indicator of the seasons. Although they are beautiful at all times right now they are in their full glory and every time i look at them i am reminded of something William McDonaugh said in regards to design. He likened, that which we, (humans) should be striving for when we design, to that which nature achieves effortlessly.
He points out that nature can create a system, that makes oxygen, sequesters carbon, fixes nitrogen, distills water, provides habitat for thousands of species, accrues solar energy as fuel, builds soil, creates microclimates, changes with the seasons, and is beautiful. For me, only His fingerprint can explain this.
