inability to know

no matter how far i stray, how many different things i learn and experience, i always come back to the human body. something about it makes me stumble around, lurking, leisurely questioning it's ability to function. wonder & awe, really, is what it comes down to. i don't get it. i don't understand it. it makes my heart stop, my throat choke up, and even some version of butterflies in my stomach. it's the inability to know and understand that keeps me wondering.

organ - function - blood flow - muscles - cells - cancer 
it always comes back to cancer & disease - anything foreign within the body - good verses bad.

i get that far, then i get stuck on how to depict a group of cells, and not making it look like a giraffe, a pile of speckled stones, or some smashed blueberries (however, smashed fruit might be a great venture to go on this summer).  but this time, i think i may be on to something:

my lines and patterns were right in front of me the whole time... and i think that they might work. what do you think? it's obviously a rough sketch - the heart is just a shape - but do you think it could become something?
enjoy your monday,
