New York City's borough of Brooklyn is internationally known for its rich history as a leader in global culture and industry, though, as those of us who live here know, Brooklyn is also very pretty and has an abundance of indigenous plant life and flora that envelope the streets, parks and preserves. People seem to recognize the aesthetic beauty of flowers: The rich colors and textures, the complicated shapes and patterns, but I'm most interested in the life-force, the subtle consciousness we can see as they reach toward the sun or into the ether for nourishment, close their petals to protect their reproductive organs or open them to germinate and re-produce. Maybe the pleasure we receive from them is a recognition of a similar connection to, and expression of, the same source.
