That Banana There!

Many years ago one of my kids had a little picture book that illustrated the long journey of a banana from the time of clearing, planting, growing, harvesting and so on until it lands in your breakfast cereal. The idea was that things we take for granted and that look simple when glanced at casually are a lot more intricate and complex when studied closely. Here are a few of those things.

I’m sure you have one or several of these in your house without ever having taken a look at it.


It’s the lens in your CD/DVD player without which you would see or hear nothing.

We don’t think about the complexity of fabrics when we get dressed in the morning, but there is a lot going on when you take a closer look.


We handle money every day, zoom in and you’ll be amazed.


Finally, here is my latest nature discovery. Spiders don’t shave their legs. Here is the pic to prove it.
