The Pattern of Our Surroundings

Today is an assignment day. Go beyond your usual route whether by car or foot and discover some natural form that inspires you. Get enthused and motivated to put a plan in action. Sometimes when we stare at something in our own backyard for too long, we lose perspective. If you are considering anything beyond a few flowers or shrubs in your garden, this is a much needed exercise. No need to go into design theory. Your assignment is to discover some of the simple patterns in nature. These patterns can be difficult to articulate in words but become obvious to the keen observer. It is all around us. If you want to enhance your surroundings, it is essential to be this keen observer. So take this assignment seriously. Get out there today and discover what inspires you in its natural form. You’ll be surprised upon return to your own space how you may see things from a different perspective. Marcus Aurelius articulated it best. “No form of Nature is inferior to Art; for the arts merely imitate natural forms.” Hope you'll post your favorite findings.
