    Ah so much beauty contained in mere droplets which in turn are their own multiverses of possibilities and constellations of atoms and time moves differently there where each second elongates into a perfect decade.

    Those were nice days.
    Oh, this is beautiful, jon!! It reminds me of WALL-E.

    - Clouds.
    - Large spans of sky, ocean, or land.
    - When something new and awesome happens on a piece of technology.
    - Water. Water water water.
    Water............ water.................. everywhere. I love your list. So much happy beauty inside each choice.

    I love Pink Floyd... ty!!

    This is part of why nature is so important to me and I love walking out in it, getting into the wilderness, away from everyone. Everything that most concern themselves with (and that over time start creeping up on me if I'm immersed in it for too long) ceases to have any significance.

    So I get my 'happy eyes' anytime I go out. It's so totally freeing to me. As a pre-teen I still remember a moment when I went out in the backyard in twilight, picked up some fallen autumn leaves from the ground, smelled them, held them up into the air, threw them over me, looked up at the sky, and just immersed myself in happiness in that single moment; it was like a spontaneous ode to the world and beauty and life around me, a bit of a conscious element of wanting to remember that moment and what it meant/symbolized to me, that I felt a part of and that was a stark contrast to my everyday life and peers that I didn't feel connected with at all.

    It started out as a general pull... appreciation, calling, something that spoke to me at my core. I didn't even notice all of the smaller details at the time. But over each year since my youth, I've accumulated more and more awareness of the pieces in nature. In my youth it started with birds, and I loved the trees too, in my 20's I started noticing the wildflowers that would pop up at certain times of the year (and am now obsessed with wildflowers and am so 100% happy sitting in a field of wildflowers in the alpine in the mountains in the summer), and now into my 30's I'm starting to notice all of the little things, the insects crawling on the bark of a tree, the fungi on a rotting log, the way a stream meanders and moss grows on the rocks....so much beauty. And everything interconnected in such an awesome way.

    All of it makes me smile.
    You make me smile, friend. Beautifully written post, thank you for sharing these thought treasures with all of us.

    And we have absolutely no idea what we will say. Our voice tends to deepen and become a little woody, but then burst forth in leaf. We may become profound or silly, or say things we have never heard before. It's a pentecost of the trees.
    To speak as a tree one must first understand the tree and in so understanding time will stop for just a mere fraction of a second and then the moment passes and you will be standing in front of the tree with a flash of knowledge and a mind changing its colors as a new season rolls in to claim the first.

    I find walking into doors quite helpful in this regard too.

    Let us both become Strangers in a Strange Land and get tattoos that mean nothing.

    Even this contributes for it is your own lovely point of view.

    And droplets create other wonders too!

    We are already Strangers in a Strange Land. Now our task is to become Strangers in an Even Stranger Land.

    or look at molecules, they are like constellations of atoms swirling around us, filled with bursts of energy

    im actually getting a tattoo based on the idea molecules, atoms look like the universe & planets as seen in microscopic images. the galaxy at large is interesting, but i dont think of trees; i was made for cities, industry and the great indoors.nature is scenic, but id prefer watching volcanoes erupt from a safe distance to a rainbow.
    Oh, its
    You

    If I could, I would shrink us to a droplet and we can evaporate into space.

    Hmm.... I like this new plan. Do we still get to get tattoos?

    Oh! That sounds beautiful. Would you mind sharing a picture at some point?

    I do this in ways opposite to yourself perhaps saturned. I love adrenaline rushes and myself becoming one rather than getting lost in the majesty about me.
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    Yay to global warming!

    Do we have to?
    Or you could get two.

    So it averages out.

    just think of how lovely it would be to be a droplet of rain ascending back to the sky which would be like coming home to splash into vapor and float away.

    mm, actually i have always like the idea of a tattoo far more than the actual application of such a thing. so much permanence D:

    Everything, honestly. There's always something. At least outdoors - it's a little trickier in a boring conference room or something like that.

    The physics of droplet formation makes me almost misty-eyed.

    Ah, conceptual tattoos. I like the idea.

    Yay! I am so glad. Even in a conference room though.... there is some scope for beauty. The paper leaks with the echoes of its prior life, the glass remembers the sounds of the sea from when it was sand, etc.

    Ah, yes, my misty-eyed one.

    Perhaps I can transform myself into just a tear or two and then dissipate into clouds and sky and space and stars.

    I wonder if we can consider thoughts as being conceptual tattoos upon the folded skin of our memories.
