A Brief History Of The Universe

The universe oscillates. A series of movements; atoms and matter, expanding and contracting. I get overwhelmed sometimes thinking about the scope of it all--the immensity. That’s one of the reasons I love the ocean, or lakes, rivers. Water at its essence, is a microcosm for the universe; its cyclical nature, its ebb and flow, waves and tides, cause and reaction. It’s a quiet beauty and rhythm that comforts me and offers hope that even a tiny speck in the universe like me might cause ripples in the existence of the whole. That perhaps we can all play a part in the movement of life. Mostly, I find hope in the constant of its nature; that I can sit beside a river at dusk and listen to it, touch it, watch it begin to catch fire with reds and yellows and pinks, as the sun disappears beneath the horizon. I know that it will go on. It was here before me, it will continue after, and I feel blessed to have been a part of it; even if that part is brief.

@Bethany, I'm not sure what you mean--there's Google Reader and Bloglovin...do you have a preferred method to follow blogspot sites?

What a wonderful explanation on the history of the universe! I love the metaphor that was being used in this post! It almost felt like I was reading a fiction, accompanied by great outfit pictures!

this wren dress has got to be one of my favorite dresses on you. it's just such a wonderful dress - and it fits you so wonderfully. i always love your images by the river - i am too scared to come too close to the river because i have a history of slipping and falling on rocks and getting huge injuries (this has happened more than 3 times in my life...you'd think i'd learn). anyhow, your friend jon's writing is truly beautiful, i love his use of such vivid imagery
