1/9/13 small stone

What is infinite, if not something
that defies measuring? ย This, where we stand
or walk, lie dreaming or just sit on a hill,
or a stone, or grass, or around a fire, chanting;
this had a beginning, and is not a forever place
but finite, measurable on some scale I don’t know.

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  1. I seem to recall, from long, long ago, that there is a sign for infinity … something like a dot over a figure or character ~ for sure some kind person will help me out here ~ maybe you know, Susan?

    I like the measured pace and evenness to contrast with the topic, here … niiiice ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. You are right, infinite defies measurement. What we have on earth here is finite, defined, measurable, but I think on different scales becasue what we have on earth is also tangible. ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. What we have we should be grateful for as nothing does remain in the end…
    ๐Ÿ™‚ Lovely Sus

  4. And it seems like we humans always want to measure, weigh, evaluate everything…and then compare. How we limit ourselves.

  5. ……….small stones…big ripples……….

    We tend to set limits in order to process and understand. What were we before this body, before this earth, rewound through solar disks to supernovas to points of no size. Our constituent parts existed through it all, but they aren’t really cool with sharing details of the journey. The scale by which any of it is measured constrains to our 13.7, but I’ve a feeling it Shari Lewis had the right idea.
