Thematic. Chaotic. Here.

Getting metaphysical in the fruit aisle
The amazing thing about stuff grown from nature is how it mixes the random with the ordered. The texture alone seems to offer nothing even approaching order. But the longer you stand there and ponder the metaphysical "why" of a simple fruit, you begin to realize it's anything but chaotic. Billions of years of evolution ensured this particular fruit would grow in this particular way. When you zoom the lens way back, what initially seemed chaotic is, indeed, rather orderly.
Or so I like to remind myself when I get home and tuck into this rather delicious example of nature's chaotic-yet-orderly perfection. I guess I'm just weird that way.
Your turn: Your favourite fruit is...?
