I turned away from the visual feast of the Andaman Sea in Krabi, Thailand to return to my room. As I approached the steps to climb to street level a blend of nature-made and man-made items caught my attention. I liked the patterns – the lines of the steps with the ovals of the four leaves, the splotches of sun and shade. The exhibit was temporary. A breeze might lift the leaves to another place at any moment. A street-sweeper’s broom might scrape the steps and break the silence and urge the leaves into a pile without personality and style. The sun was sure to move and change the balance between light and dark. But for a few seconds, the efforts of nature and man created a display I stopped to look at and enjoy.
