“Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars – mere globs of gas atoms. I too can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more?” – Richard Feynman

  1. Sometimes less is more, and more is less … The more you get to know as a scientist, the greater the awareness of and admiration for the complexity and infinite diversity of the universe, the origin of the earth and its species, their habitats, environment, vegetation, herbs, flowers and trees. In my humble opinion, being a scientist allows one to wonder even more about those little details others might take for granted. Poetry and science are not incompatible at all, a great scientist can at the same time be a poet, and vice versa ! For sure, as photography is poetry using images, we don’t have to look any further to find a good example of this, do we Greet ? 😉 (y)
