A Light From The Deep

Deep within a luffa sponge. (Click picture for larger view) Posted by Picasa
"If you look deep within, you will find a brilliant light. To many, far too many, squint and turn away from the shine. Let your eyes adjust, and bathe in the radiance." ~ Unknown
The luffa (or loofa) sponge originates from the mature fruit of a tropical vining plant after all but the coarse network of xylems is removed. My grandmother grew these in her garden and dried them. They have central tunnel like spaces containing scattered flat round seeds. This macro shot was taken with the lens focused down one of these long spaces revealing the intricate patterns deep inside.

I think everything wrote made a bunch of sense. But, what about this?

what if you wrote a catchier title? I mean, I don't wish to tell you how to run your blog, but what if you added a title that makes people desire more? I mean "A Light From The Deep" is a little plain. You ought to look at Yahoo's front page and watch how they create post titles to get people to open the links.
You might try adding a video or a pic or two to grab readers excited about
what you've written. In my opinion, it could make your website a little livelier.
