though I have not been here long,
I can look up at the sky at night and tell
how things are likely to go for
the next hundred million years:
the universe will probably not find
a way to vanish nor I
in all that time reappear.
- A. R. Ammons from Rapids
It's not always nice to realize that you will not be around for as long as the universe. But, sometimes it is just the thing you need to remember to put everything into perspective.
