Between Time and Scale
by Jim Benz
I was talking with my son
the other night
about the correlation between
time and scale
imagining a perspective
in the palms of our hands
or so small, dancing
with strings in a subatomic
It was a nice moment
we understood one another
that no one else would

Yes, on the scale of time, but on altigether a different scale of understanding and awareness.

In moments you tried to grasp the infinite link between yourselves and the universe, you grasped the timeless link between yourselves. Beautiful.

I love subatomic particles and that whole perspective. I explore those "pieces" of the universe in relation to whatever the hell it is I'm doing here as a human. I love this little glimpse into what seems to be an intimate moment between you and your son. Blessings.
