Our botanical drawing teacher sent us a link to Focus on Nature, a biennial exhibit at the New York State Museum.  It is a collection of natural history drawings from around the world.  The on-line presentation is beautifully done.  It will run as a slide show, a kaleidoscope of plants and animals in many styles and media.  I sat amazed at the variety and beauty of the living world, and the obvious love behind the attention paid to detail and skill of the renderings.  It is rare to get a close look at most animals, and blossoms are fleeting things. Photographs somehow cannot capture the reality as a drawing or painting can.

Don't ask yourself what the world needs. Ask yourself what makes you come alive and then go do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive. - Howard Thurman.
