“We were made to enjoy music, to enjoy beautiful sunsets, to enjoy looking at the billows of the sea and to be thrilled with a rose that is bedecked with dew… Human beings are actually created for the transcendent, for the sublime, for the beautiful, for the truthful… and all of us are given the task of trying to make this world a little more hospitable to these beautiful things.”
― Desmond Tutu

 

Time …

Recently, in Montreal, I was kindly invited to a rehearsal of Händel’s Triumph of Time and Truth.  Sitting near the centre of a beautiful chapel, surrounded by three choirs (one in front, and one on each side) I felt the chorus line ” Time is supreme, Time is a mighty pow’r!” not only wash over me, but reverberating deep in my soul.

After what was a powerful experience, this notion of time did not leave me for days. Is it really, I was asking myself? Supreme, a mighty power? Or is it just a social construct to help us understand this world? Einstein proposed about 100 years ago that time and space are not really constant.

 “The distinction between past, present and future is only a stubbornly persistent illusion.” Einstein quote
