Beauty in Microcosm

I have a daughter who loves tiny things.  She loves all things miniscule; she sees details as full of infinite potential.  And considering that each of us is built from billions of tiny cells, she may just have a point.

All life is built on twining ladders of ethereal links -DNA, programming infinite variations of infinite proteins into chains of information which tell our hearts when to constrict, guide digestion, help our body to fight the common cold.  It is the ‘mini’ that drives our muscles, encodes our eye colour, ensures propogation of the species.  Imagine the huge hands of God attaching a ladybug’s wings, designing the intricacies of elemental compounds, adjoining the 2 ‘H’ to the ‘O’…

Beauty in microcosm – this, then, may be the driving force which flows through all beauty, tying it into a ribbon packaging proteins and defining materials one from another.

Do you see beauty in the ‘small stuff”?
