Sometimes there just aren’t any words that can do justice to what one wants to say; or perhaps there are, but one simply doesn’t know them.

Either way, I’ve often found myself being in that situation because of the beauty of our universe.

It’s a bitter-sweet thing – on the one hand, not being able to define that feeling of raw wonder in my own way feels like something is amiss, but on the other hand, just to be able to feel that thing in the first place is a privilege.
