May Sarton

Find a biography of the poet, novelist and memoirist May Sarton in the online Dictionary of Unitarian and Universalist Biography. Sarton was drawn to Unitarianism throughout her life. The DUUB article reads, in part, “(Sarton’s) appeal lay in her ability to ‘sacramentalize the ordinary’ by probing everyday subjects such as flowers, gardens, animals, changing sunlight and personal relationships in order to find deeper, universal truths.”

In Journal of Solitude (1973), Sarton writes:

There is really only one possible prayer: Give me to do everything I do in the day with a sense of the sacredness of life.

Fibonacci Images

On Weed’s website line, see images of vegetables which exhibit patterns based on the Fibonacci sequence.

Find Fibonacci-based spiral images from nature, including a photo of a nautilus shell, on the website of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. The site explains the Fibonacci spiral:

If you construct a series of squares with lengths equal to the Fibonacci numbers (1, 1, 2, 3, 5, etc.) and trace a line through the diagonals of each square, it forms a Fibonacci spiral. Many examples of the Fibonacci spiral can be seen in nature, including in the chambers of a nautilus shell.
