Chasms: Mine is the Curse of Expectation.

Via Flickr:
She could sense its vacuum from a distance far beyond the hollow air that rushed in to fill the void across this canyon...
A chasm spanning ten million miles wide, its bowels cut wide open, deeper than the most distant molecule in space...

She could see a distant, almost transparent apparition standing very still and watching her with no expression.., she stood precisely where the sun would set.

All the while, knowing that this far-off stranger was not a stranger at all.

I was She and She was Me, and despite our fate to spend eternity alone, We shared a finite moment within an infinite expanse.

(They became We - She & Me).

“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.”
