Can you guess what this is?
When I first saw this photo, my mind leapt to the exotic — were they sensory tentacles, desert succulents, sea vent anemone?
Nothing quite so glamorous or unusual I’m afraid.
Simply a microscopic view of cucumber skin.
Though such beauty hidden in full view seems all the more remarkable.
It’s also a sobering reminder of how quickly we numb ourselves to “the ordinary.”
In fact, maybe it’s a challenge to the meaning and existence of that word entirely.
