In a just a single drop of water life can be teeming. Tardigrades bumbling along, protozoa swimming through water, dirt and debris, algae filling the landscape. Their lives may seem simple yet their simple lives led to our complex lives. These micro-organisms are the foundation of all life on Earth. Billions and billions of year, generation after generation we came from them. Next time you find yourself staring into the great abyss. Remember there is an even greater abyss that we came from.
