“Small things amuse small minds.”
It’s amusing how much a leaf laying under water in an ice pocket can conjure rumination. It’s not the kind of rumination that comes with an unquiet mind, that sort of out-of-control thinking that spirals endlessly into itself. These icy leaf ruminations are just notions that sift through the synapses for no reason except that’s what we’re made to do with observations of Nature. We’re made to be inspired by Nature to see things that small minds miss because they don’t see small things, or don’t pay attention to them.
Too bad more small minds are not amused by more small things.
Small things in Nature, that is.
