Eternity is not something that begins

            After you are dead...

                        It is going on all the time....

                                                       - Charlotte Perkins Gillman

Traded with members of DAQ for their January swap.....a gold gel pen was used on the cards traded to highlight 1/2 the spokes of the wheel and the word Eternity.

Gillman's quote has a singular perspective on time that holds particular meaning for me at this point in my own personal scale of time.
