Creation and Eternity

"Neither acting nor retracting, I bear tension and paradox, in an in-between state - the place between God's and Adam's fingers in Michelangelo's depiction of creation. " -- Veronica Goodchild

When I read those words I literally shook.  I was shocked, stunned, in awe.  It was the greatest thing I've ever read.  It conjured no emotion, nor defensiveness, nor thought in me.  For a fleeting eternity, that was my reality.  In a flash of three-dimensional blue I was there, suspended, between two fingers.  The fingers neither great, nor me small, but I, and the total of my existence, lived in that space.
