The beauty of the lotus is multidimensional - its art, science, and soul all coexist to provide overall good karma.

To keep the body in good health is a duty, for otherwise we shall not be able to trim the lamp of wisdom, and keep our mind strong and clear. Water surrounds the lotus flower, but does not wet its petals.
~ Buddha

Lunch with a colleague today and though the conversation was primarily non-work in orientation, there were a few stray mentions of what the new school year will bring. Such talk led to new energy and ideas with a focus on creativity and innovation....not atypical for the beginning of fall semester. Though this lotus will have wilted by then, I hope this photo will keep the enthusiasm alive as the 'reality' sets in!! Naples Botanical Garden, Naples, FL
