Mandelbrot moments

Most of us have had a lot of fun deciphering indeterminate forms in the nature that abounds us. Be it in the shape of leaves, the gnarled branches of a leafless tree, the leaf laden oak that dwarfs that old rickety home or the recursive edges of a sand grain under the microscope. Looking at the skies yesterday over Lady Liberty, I must say that I felt equal parts elation, melancholy and awe.
