efflorescence and shriveling of the mind

Human Nature's complex beauty is filled with darkness and light and all shades of gray in between. The lows and highs of life evoke raw human nature, and while some may falter, they will also fly. Different perspectives illustrate the differences in humans, but they also highlight the similarities in humans as well.
