I Love Fall

Fall

Every leaf speaks bliss to me
Fluttering from the autumn tree.
I shall smile when wreaths of snow
Blossom where the rose should grow;
~ Emily Bronte

Are Sunflowers Nerdy?

Sunflowers are one of the species that originated in North America. They were probably one of the first cultivated crops by Native Americans around 1000 B.C.E. Europeans took the sunflowers around the world during 1500 C.E. Otherwise called helianthus, are adored for the bright and cheery disposition, also a food source to bees, squirrels, birds, and humans. They are the great inspiration to the impressionist painters, especially Vincent Van Gogh. Have spent hours staring at Philadelphia Museum of Art. Later bought a stained glass replica from the gift shop. In 2013, read that they are wilting and out of whim painted one.

I can never get enough of sunflowers. When this spring arrived, I sowed and it bloomed.

I finally understood why I’m fascinated with sunflowers. Did you know that sunflowers has a perfect geometry based on Fibonacci sequence? Golden Angle in geometry is the smaller of the angle created by sectioning the circumference of the circle according to the golden ratio – that is if their ratio is the same as the ratio of their sum to the larger of the two quantities:

a+b        a
—–   =  —
a            b

This theory plays a significant role in phyllotaxis – the arrangement of leaves on a stem. The most notable golden angle is the angle that separates the florets on a sunflower. They are just as nerdy as I can get.

Twelfth Night

Another Shakespearean inspiration – Dance… Shakespeare talks about dance in several plays. Lavolta is a kind of turning French dance, in which the man turns the woman round several times, and then assists her in making a high spring or cabriole.

Twelfth Night

O, stay and hear! Your true love’s coming,
That can sing both high and low.
Trip no further, pretty sweeting.
Journeys end in lovers meeting,
Every wise man’s son doth know.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Abstract visualization of the play “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” – believed to be written during 1590 and 1596 by William Shakespeare, this play portrays celebration of the wedding between of Theseus of Athens and the Amazon queen, Hippolyta, which is set in the woodland and in the realm of Fairyland, under the light of the moon.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Four days will quickly steep themselves in nights;

Four nights will quickly dream away the time;

And then the moon, like to a silver bow

New bent in heaven, shall behold the night

Of our solemnities.

Hippolyta, Act I, Scene I
