This piece was created with two things in mind, the big bang theory and the divorce of my parents, which happened just before making this piece.

 

The big bang theory, in a very simplified summary, describes a theory about the creation of the universe as an event that occurred nearly 14 billion years ago when a tight, dense mass exploded causing all the mass to be hurled in many different directions.

 

This theory had a lot of similarities to the end of my parents’ marriage. Both the big bang and the end of their marriage were results from one action that forever changed our universe and just as the planets are still expanding, my family is also growing further apart and redefining our relationships and distance with one another.
