“What is Eternity?”

“What is eternity?” she asked.
“Here, take a look, as far as the crow flies.”
“Where?”
“Straight ahead. That’s eternity.”
“How so?”
“Just keep looking, far and wide, but without searching.”
“How does that work?”
“Just stare into the offing, without guile or expectation, and eternity will settle right here, in the moment, encapsulated in the breadth of your very gaze.”
“And what happens when I find it?”
“It will find you.”
