If you are new around here ... hello... and thank you to the lovely new followers and friendly people who've been popping in. I try to keep up with saying hello... feel awful when I don't. And I'm sorry if I've been remiss.
Thank you all for kind words, great thoughts and the ideas you wonderful bloggers share with me directly and indirectly! I learn so much and am frequently so delighted by that which comes my way...
gardenofthefareast: time for tea
Many of us discover in childhood a love of the micro and macro worlds... if we are very lucky someone feeds our mind with wondrous stories about the stars ... the night sky, the infinite... or helps us to imagine the worlds within worlds thats is the micro-scape...

there's endless fascination found in learning about these vast worlds beyond our immediate reach. The tiny spider below and the patterns on our fingertips are virtually beyond our naked eye to see properly.

Pollen grains need microscopes....

and atoms ... well this is what Im going to share with you... something I found here on twitter:
amishare Amira Skomorowska
Amira Skomorowska has a number of fascinating weblinks, tumblr blogs etc which I follow - they deal with ideas crossing multi-disciplines... art, science, history , ideas, philosophy. I discovered the link to an extraordinary website: onvi-alerte which is a must see at Amira's twitter.
By clicking on the red text it will gradually open to an stunning and very appealing interactive - beautifully designed - which covers the microcosm to macrocosm .... with a pleasing level of scientific accuracy. I posted this on the homage blog last night and wanted you to see it and not miss out!
Truly remarkable to contemplate! I was reminded of William Blakes "to see a world in a grain of sand..." so I added that complete poem here.
Its been a lovely weekend... and managed to fit in quiet painting time... so feeling ready for the week... do hope you have a moment to see this "scale of the Universe".
Enjoy that cuppa... see you soon!
