What makes the universe so hard to comprehend is that there's nothing to compare it with.

(Such careless perfection naturally accentuated complex and omnipotent shadow vs. light-play, repeating soft and familiar melodies.
Her happiest consideration was these familiar and harmonious vibrations that every cell within her could recite by heart).

*** this was initially a photograph created by Francesca Woodman, a brilliant, eccentric photographer that took her own life at the age of 22. Perhaps i find her work so compelling because of the inredible amount of emotion, creativity, and even prophetic quality to her art, mostly self portraiture in black and white; very slow shutter speeds to create her fascinating trademark style of hauntingly, even disconcertingly dark and mysterious photos. I initially began editing a photo from google just for my own entertainment, but this casual past time began to grow into an entire collection of unique and personal pieces. I'm just glad I kept following this "rabbit hole," so that I could actually publish them... :)

“As a leader... I have always endeavored to listen to what each and every person in a discussion had to say before venturing my own opinion. Oftentimes, my own opinion will simply represent a con-sensus of what I heard in the discussion. I always remember the axiom: a leader is like a shepherd. He stays behind the flock, letting the most nimble go out ahead, whereupon the others follow, not realizing that all along they are being directed from behind.”
