Hubble has spotted an ancient galaxy that shouldn’t exist
This galaxy is so large, so fully-formed, astronomers say it shouldn’t exist at all. It’s called a “grand-design” spiral galaxy, and unlike most galaxies of its kind, this one is old. Like, really, really old. According to a new study conducted by researchers using NASA’s Hubble Telescope, it dates back roughly 10.7-billion years — and that makes it the most ancient spiral galaxy we’ve ever discovered.

cuddled with my three favorite huskies for a half hour today. #heaven
Brutus is my favorite
Rain simply makes me happy
or bright green days to make me feel better
or help me forget
all the things I want to forget
wish I could forget
the voices that never stop asking
never stop crying
never stop, whispering
all the tiny details
of all the sins I’ve ever planted throughout my life,
give me rain.
Give me rain.
God, please give me rain
that washes everything away
and leaves me perfectly devoid
Drown the sins
and the man behind them
and leave me filled
only with You.

I want my life to be filled with sunflowers.
From top to bottom
Every inch covered and choking with them.
I want to paint them
To plant them.
I want them to grow in the pit of my stomach and stretch and tangle through my intestines, weave through my rib cage and spout out my throat.
I don’t want a dark lurking on my insides anymore
I want it to be pushed out
to be filled only with sunshine and sunflowers.
