and it breaks my heart

Sometimes I am overwhelmed by the vastness of what I do not know. I could suffocate facing it, or else I could leap blind into the world that is both garishly open to me and too heavy and huge to bear.

There is so much to learn in this life. And we each go around slaking our thirst for it, letting each knew knowledge bore its hole in us and light it up. In that way, we are like little darknesses, moving through the world, accumulating stars.
