Complexity and Gratitude

20161005_120707.jpg

The more I understand the human body, all the organs and tissues, all the complex interactions between systems and cells, the more I am amazed not at how terrible disease is (and disease is terrible), but how often things go right in the body. It is amazing how often all the systems come together to allow simple actions like breathing, stretching, walking, and thinking. Take none of this for granted. Every moment, every opportunity should be seized and enjoyed with great gratitude.
