Numbers

sunflowerThere are over 2,400 species of the Mantodea (or praying mantis as I know it).  As to Helainthus (sunflower) there are only 52 species.  And then there is Homo sapiens… we are the only surviving species of the genus Homo.  I am happy that I am a lot bigger than the praying mantis.  I am also happy that the sunflowers are almost (but not quite) as tall as I am.
It took 78 days for this particular flower to bloom.  It took me 53 years to bloom.  And as to that praying mantis, he is lucky if he lives to be 12 months old.  In spite of that fact, we are greatly outnumbered.
A lot goes on around us.
Step outside.
Take a look around.
See that shooting star?
What to make of it!
