people tend to ignore details . . .
Kind of an odd quote for the image– you're thinking?
I know it might not work, but I wanted to tie in a Netflick I saw last night. I thought colorful pictures might hide the soapbox I feel I'm standing on as I want to shout– rent the HBO movie titled Temple Grandin!
Temple is autistic, and in her brilliance used what she thinks of as her "gift" of autism to help us learn to understand animals better, particularly livestock and pets. The quote is from her book Animals Make Us Human.
Also, the behavior message in the tulips seems to celebrate not only details but their beauty at all stages, even as they breathe their last. And don't you feel flowers make us human too?
Artist husband brought me these tulips– tight and taut in a perfection only mega production could provide. We enjoyed them for a week, and he wondered why I waited so long (their last day with us) to photograph them. Lank, limp and lovely– they just had so much more to say.
