Did you know that a remarkable relationship exists between process of respiration in animals and the process of photosynthesis in plants?  The molecule of chlorophyll (what makes plants green and soaks up the sun’s energy) has only one atom that makes it different from a molecule of hemoglobin (what makes blood red and carries oxygen)!

After reading this I felt a deeper connection all the green life around me.  That what is flowing through my veins is not so different from what is flowing through them.

What patterns in nature have drawn you into deeper relationship with the
larger community of life?

I never saw a discontented tree.  They grip the ground as though they liked it, and though fast rooted they travel about as far as we do.  They go wandering forth in all directions with every wind, going and coming like ourselves, traveling with us around the sun two million miles a day, and through space heaven knows how fast and far!  ~John Muir
