11 August 2013


This moment is not an add-on to what has come before, nor is it a warm-up or precursor to what comes after.  All the lapses of ages will neither augment nor diminish the morning calls of the birds I now hear, nor will it add or subtract any color from the sunrise out my window right now.  In this moment I, too, am ageless, and nothing of my senses will be in any way sharpened or dulled in hearing and seeing these birds and this sunrise, no matter how old I am or how long I live.

The two axes of time, if we need to talk like that, are not past and present, but now and forever.
