My Very Favorite Thing in NYC

The American Museum of Natural History.

I. Love. This. Place.

I could stay here for a week and change my life. I’m sure of it.

The walls pulse with awareness, knowledge, the sort of enlightenment that comes with knowing you know nothing. Though we are but specks on the spectrum of the infinite, we are also a part of it. Our ancestors crossed the plains of Africa. Our planet sustains magnificent beasts and brilliant crystals and us. We have 99.9% of the same DNA. We are exactly the same and we are completely unique.

We have lived and discovered and conquered and destroyed for many lifetimes.

Still, boundless frontiers remain unexplored.

Humans are not all that is. We are part of what is. A blip on the radar of time.

I find it empowering. Emboldened by this intricate existence, by the possibility and the mystery of it all.
