The Ponder Days

I am just a sojourner, an artist wandering through life with a sense of wonder about it all. Come ponder with me. This year is about observation and perspective.

This blog is interactive and is at its best when comments are left and opinions shared, lively discussions generated, and perhaps with your favorite beverage.

I would love to read your comments. Please, don't be shy...

Miraculous bodies

It is awesome in the truest sense of the word to observe our bodies at work. How they heal themselves and know exactly what to the skin knows where to all the tiny cells know just what their jobs are and do those jobs well for the most part when we don't interfere.
There are "Bodies" and "Body World" exhibits in various locations throughout the world. I saw the "Body World" exhibit some time ago in Philadelphia and while it could have been disturbing, it was amazing to actually be able to see actual bodies doing what they do and witness what makes them work.
All of the specimens were actual individuals who donated their bodies for this project, as some do to science. This leaves some with strong feelings. I am not posting pictures due to the sensitive nature, but I feel it is an amazing exhibit should you be close enough to attend.
