Morning Dew

Morning dew hanging from the railing of a balcony - I looked at them for a while. As I noticed the details, it was only natural to think about the geometric shape created by the droplets and the Poisson distribution of the droplets along the rail. Someone versed in music might imagine a song. A poet might invent a new poem. All are expressions of appreciation of morning dew. There is a feeling associated with this appreciation of nature. When I have this feeling, I cannot imagine how science or art can exist without that feeling. It is simply the foundation for science or art. Science education that does not exercise this feeling is education without the foundation of science.
