These pretty petals were being pushed around on Facebook this week. No idea of the original source of the photo, but it’s a lovely quote from Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881 – 1955), a French philosopher and Jesuit priest. Many of his writings were censored by the Catholic church during his lifetime. He wrote The Phenomenon of Man and The Divine Milieu, a synthesis of theology and science. He was also trained as a paleontologist and geologist and joined the Peking Man excavations in 1926. This quote feels very relevant for our times. You can read more about this fascinating man here.
