Dear Paul, I often use mountains as metaphors. Just as you say, "In eternity there is no time." A beautiful couplet that shows your wisdom well, my friend. Love, Carolyn

Thank you Charm. There is not much that can be said in 2 lines, so getting the message across becomes harder. // paul

Hi Eileen! Thank you....you rock:) Of course you must take part in this teeny weeny yet tricky form; I know you'll come up with something unique! I will be honest with you....this took me a long time to write and even longer in deciding whether to post it or not!! I finally accepted this version after deleting another dozen. Have a nice Sunday. hugs // paul
