Leaving the architectural world for a bit, we took a morning walk at the harbor, the embarcadero to be specific.

These leftover stumps of chopped-down palm trees look like other independent life forms, and have a strange, neglected sadness .  I was glad there wasn’t much color in this photo.  The morning light seems to sweep gently over these stumps and remains.  I remember recently seeing an article exploring whether plants feel pain.  This reminded me of that question.  Pain is a big question.

  1. Interesting question. I know that plants flourish in a happy, peaceful, and loving environment. But do they think or feel? Or is their experience based on what’s going on around them?
