22. Time is but a human creation, my friend.
Eternity is timelessness.

I had the same feeling visiting the John Wesley house in London. I got to sit at the old pump-organ that Charles owned - the place where he wrote his hymns. One of my favored posessions is a photo of me at John Wesley's grave (he was/is the founder of Methodism). I felt an instant connection to something I had only before read about... it became real for me.

Aw, hell - even flying over the ocean connected me with my great-great-grandparents and their boat-journey 160 years earlier. It reminded me of Isaac Watts' hymn, "O God, Our Help in Ages Past."

"A thousand ages in thy sight, are like an evening gone;
short as the watch that ends the night, before the rising sun.

Time, like an ever rolling stream, bears all who breathe away; they fly forgotten, as a dream dies at the opening day."

Nothing wrong in feeling sentimental. :)
