I should celebrate snow, each flake an individual marvel.  I wonder who exactly it was that compared each snowflake to another in a blizzard to state with authority that each arrangement of molecules per flake is unique.  Eventually the pattern has to repeat or split somewhere.  Even DNA twins sometimes.

    I’ve often wondered how they could know that each was unique. Looked at them ALL!?

  2. Metaphorically speaking…snow-flakes are like billions of molecules…just like us humans who in our DNA have billions of neurons flowing through our consciousness at this very unique moment. Brilliant! and a very good metaphor of humanity and its creation of why we are all here. 🙂

  3. Whoever it was, it wasn’t a poet…they would still be scratching their possibly collective heads over the whole sameness/difference conundrum.
    You’re setting of more ripples dear…if I post them, do you mind me calling them that (as I did before)?

    I’m in flakes assembly. We offer quite an assortment for all conditions. Big ones little ones, heavy ones, light ones, lace-like ones, and my personal favourite, one that looks a lot like a fleur-de-lis, but we only use that one on rare occasions. We do love to see you cope with our droppings.
