and when time stands still ..

And then, some things never change. Like how beautiful this part of New Hampshire is, come summer or winter, spring or fall. She just gets into new clothes ! And so it goes on and on for ever .. and you want to hold on to each moment for an eternity.

I read a story about eternity that I particularly liked:

In a country up north, there's a big boulder a hundred miles long and a hundred miles high. Once in every thousand years, a small bird comes to sharpen its beak on this rock.

When this rock will have completely worn away, a single day of eternity will have gone by.
