“When no preconceived ideas keep us from looking and we take all the time we need to really “feel” what we see – when we are able to do that – that universe opens up and we catch our breath in awe at the incredible complexity of design in the humblest things. It is only when this happens that we regain our sense of wonder.” – Dorr Bothwell: Straws in the Wind: An Artist’s Life as told to Bruce Levene (2013)
