“Morning dew on a dragonfly,”
Image by Lasse Andersson
As a former Graphic Artist I can easily appreciate a good image, and I find dragonflies interesting in their own right; but a bejeweled dragonfly is even more so.
At first glance the dragonfly appears to be composed of water droplets intricately connected and dispersed throughout the entire physical structure. But in our minds, we know that the insect is not “composed” of those same water droplets—we know that those droplets are instead “adorning” its exterior structure.
This realization stirred another within me: Who we actually are is often different from how we appear to be. Or reversed: How we appear to be and what we do, does not always reflect who we truly are.
Maybe I’ll leave it at that for now.
