I think…

I’m doing some research on Darwin and evolution to prepare for my art show at the Jericho Arts Centre in Vancouver next June. Here’s a link to his first sketch of how transmutation (now called evolution) works. The story is he did the sketch first and then firmly wrote “I think…” at the top. I imagine him starting these words rather tentatively and getting clearer by the time he added the dots at the end, but still aware there was much to consider and learn before being absolutely sure. Let alone explaining it to others…
