Welcome to Natural Deltas, a blog about changes in nature and life. As a child, I was fascinated by the many changes that each season brought to my Southwestern Pennsylvania home. From summer sunrises to October sunsets, and the green of spring to the white of winter, all offered many lessons if I was willing to observe. Each passing year brought more understanding and questions to ponder beneath the skies.
Once I learned more about math, I found that many natural occurrences and patterns can be related to or understood using mathematical principles. Then I discovered earth science, biology, chemistry, physics, and geography, all of which fueled my curiosity and thirst for knowledge.
My intent for this blog is to discuss changes in nature such as erosion, photosynthesis, the seasons, and tides using common language; to share experiences in nature and art; and to post some miscellaneous writings with different perspectives than those commonly known. This intent is meant to make the mind, body, and soul wonder and ponder a bit the many everyday occurrences we may take for granted or not fully appreciate.
If you are wondering why I chose the name Natural Deltas for this blog, a little math can explain it. The Greek letter delta, written as Δ, is often used in mathematical equations as a symbol for change. Since most of the posts are about natural changes in life, nature, and art, I thought this play on words would add some intrigue to the blog.
May you enjoy the content of this blog and learn a little something along the way.
