Sun Flower

There was something about the bright coronal mass ejection (cropped but un-retouched) in February 2002 that, when copied into a circular pattern, suggested the splash of color found in a flower petal. Add an extreme ultraviolet image of the Sun as the centerpiece and it seemed to suggest a recreation of oneness in the universe. The English poet William Blake expressed it as “all the world in a grain of sand.”
