We ought not to ask why the human mind troubles to fathom the secrets of the universe. The diversity of the phenomena of nature is so great, and the treasures hidden in the skies so rich, precisely in order that the human mind shall never be lacking in fresh nourishment.
― Johannes Kepler

Solo lo spirito può suscitare la diversità, la pluralità, la molteplicità e allo stesso tempo fare l'unità. Perché quando siamo noi a voler fare la diversità facciamo gli scismi e quando siamo noi a voler fare l'unità facciamo l'uniformità, l'omologazione.
Only the spirit can stir diversity, plurality, multiplicity and at the same time making the unit. Because when we want to make the difference we make schisms and when are we to want to make the unit do the uniformity, the approval.
The project was launched by the late president of the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, who wanted to establish a structure that would unite the cultural diversity of the Islamic world with the historical and modern values of architecture and art.
A Richardson’s geranium (Geranium richardsonii) leaf glows in a light fleck traveling across the forest floor littered with fallen aspen leaves. The reds of the geranium leaf, along with the strawberry leaves (Frageria virginiana) in the background, are provided by anthocyanin pigments formerly masked by the more dominant green chlorophyll. The yellow and orange aspen leaves are colored by xanthophyll and carotenoid pigments. These non-green pigments help increase light capture for photosynthesis, as well as protect the plant against ultraviolet light, cold temperatures, and pathogens. Whatever their role the combination of the pigments and the resulting diversity of colors makes autumn a lovely season, at least for a few days in this forest.
Today Northwest Germany was hit by heavy thunderstorms. My home town got just the perfect quantity of rain. Without obligations to water the garden I pinched (again) the scooter of my son to invade near by Lower Saxony. In the middle of nowhere I spotted this scene. Melle, Lower Saxony, Germany.
This shot is a symbol for a perfect balance. Hope that my dear friend with the orange hair will get sober one day to achieve something similar. May the cool waters of Canada have a healing effect.....

Thank you everyone for your visit, favorites and comments.
I usually don't take pictures of birds at feeders, but I couldn't resist this one--three species, each with their own private "booth". The top two birds are American Goldfinches; the red-breasted bird is a House Finch; and, the bird on the right is a Black-capped Chickadee.

“Ultimately, America's answer to the intolerant man is diversity.”
“We need to help students and parents cherish and preserve the ethnic and cultural diversity that nourishes and strengthens this community - and this nation.”
“We are all different, which is great because we are all unique. Without diversity life would be very boring.”
Thank you for your kind visit. Have a wonderful and beautiful day! ❤️ ❤️ ❤️
