Seeing the World Inside An Allium

It amazes me when I see living things like this Allium about to burst forth into the world, going about its business, being gorgeous! It reminds me that lying just beneath the surface, indiscernible to the average viewer, cool things are taking shape. And to look at the world with better eyes. And I love when I walk around and ride the Skytrain in Vancouver because surrounding me are people who I know have done amazing things.
