lost time.


coming across these stairs

in the middle of the woods

wondering what they once led to

and how much time has been lost

since they led anyone there?

  1. I was so glad to read your follow-up comment, Beth, because the curiosity about what lay at the bottom was killing me. 🙂 Thank you for starting Sunday with this great meditation about time!

  2. I feel that way a lot of the time when I visit old churches that are now too run down to even be tourist destinations. I wonder for how many centuries people poured their dreams into prayers there, imagining themselves to be part of God’s Plan for the future and now it’s fallen to the amoral forces of entropy.
