World In (Fall) Colour - Missoula, Montana

The last sentence of this (rather chemically adventurous) scientist's quote was, for me, a rather striking reminder of another way we are set apart from amongst all other life on this earth to receive such unmerited care and graciousness:

“Outside is pure energy and colorless substance. 
All of the rest happens through the mechanism of our senses. 
Our eyes see just a small fraction of the light in the world. 
It is a trick to make a colored world, which does not exist outside of human beings.” 
- Albert Hofmann (1906-2008)
