In the darkest part of the night, it takes an act of imagination to know that a light is coming. Yet, even in that darkness, the natural world exists in an unseen network of poetry, honesty, elegance, and symbiosis. I invite you to see this secret world with your heart and let it buoy you in knowing that no matter what is happening in the world around you, we always have the choice to treat each other with care. In the web of all living things and the beauty of universes contained therein, pareidolia arises as evidence of our innate desire for connection: a touchstone for all worlds possible, equally planted in stars and clouds; leaves and sunlight. — Leticia Maldonado
