BIG: Valley of dessert in Iran
These images are not
or from anyone’s imagination.
They are actually
Nasa satellite photos
of the earth I found online.
I have paired them here with
of structures within the brain
from a new book
you don’t have to be
a neuroscientist to appreciate.
Ever read an astronomy book
and pondered the vastness of the universe
while taking a peek at another book on microbes
or something else invisible to the naked eye?
The beauty and artistry of the the big and small blew my mind.

COOL: New book by Carl Schoonover: PORTRAITS OF THE MIND
The planet is gorgeously made,
and you and your lovely
neurons are too.
Peace to you right where you are.
