time and the universe...

"our time on earth is only a small part of the workings of the universe. in a minute or so we forget our sorrows, even the most painful, as in minutes the ocean forgets its storms, and for the universe, days and weeks are only seconds"

this beautiful thought comes at a moment of sorrow.

well, i'm glad it helped a little. i'm really sorry to hear about teh sorrow. much as i'd like to completely agree with andersen, it seems it can certainly take more than a few days to get over certain things; but it is nice to contextualize our time with a different kind of time and any way to get some perspective and thought at a time of sorrow is good. i hope life takes a better turn and there is more goodness to be found.

thanks, today, talking to a dear soul, working my garden, and watching 2001 - A Space Odyssey, did gave me other perspective of things, happiness is such a fugitive thing.
