Too mind bending not to reblog!
i feel like this is exactly what Vincent Van Gogh saw and now i am crying
GOTTA FIGURE OUT HOW TO WATCH THIS IN THE OCULUS!!!
No, my soul is not asleep.
It is awake, wide awake.
It neither sleeps nor dreams, but watches,
its eyes wide open
far-off things, and listens
at the shores of the great silence.
