ninety nine percent empty space

To stand like a curious and elated child, dizzied by the great mystery into which we are born // Here, I’ve taken a photo from stage in a moment during which I thought of my dear brother who, perhaps more than anyone I know could use every single hug in such a room to heal a hurting head and a hurting heart. I was totally overwhelmed in that moment. I still am // I read that an atom is almost 99.999% empty space, which means that everything in the universe is mostly nothing. I think I might finally sleep tonight.
