I am haunted by thoughts of eternity
Background from a women's sportswear catalog. Image of Niagara Falls is not a photo: that's a black-and-white reproduction of Frederic Edwin Church's oil painting. Contemplative young man in harlequin attire by Pablo Picasso. Doves from the lid of a children's magic set. Numbers from a magazine article on late 19th century spiritualists.
I really am haunted by thoughts of eternity. And infinity. Endless numerals spooling out like the number pi. Maybe it has to do with being over the hill.
I have a question: if one dove is for the Holy Spirit, what do two doves mean?
