eternity






We're always thinking of eternity as 
an idea that cannot be understood, 
something immense. 
But why must it be? 

What if, instead of all this, 
you suddenly find just a little room there, 
something like a village bath house, 
grimy, and spiders in every corner, 
and that's all eternity is. 

Sometimes, you know, 
I can't help feeling that that's what it is.

eternity,
infinity,
infinately large,
infinetesimally small -
concepts i deal with in every day work life,
may be this is why i am a bit off?
But the peace i had for that breif time i was "dead",
unbelivable and wonderful -
i would have no problem being there
always.
