There is a structure in nature…a structure that promises constancy and reliability. In a world that seems without structure at times, nature gives the sense that everything will be alright.

It is why I often run away to the woods, to the sea, to the prairie…

The bee in the picture above is an insect. Insects are varied in their shapes and sizes, their habits and their habitats, but all reliably have six legs and three body parts. That is their structure. And the buttonbush blossom from which this Tiger Swallowtail butterfly, an insect, drinks the nectar has a constancy of structure all its own. Each buttonbush blossom will always look the same, it cannot be confused with any other flower.

These damselflies are insects also. They have their own recognizable structure, different from that of the butterfly or the bee.

Structure gives nature a sense of order, and order gives life a sense of peace.
