Finite and Infinite

Days after my recent cancer surgery, I was home resting, too tired to join in on a family dinner. I heard my wife and children talking and laughing during the meal.

All of a sudden, I felt sorry for myself. It seemed like the sounds coming from the kitchen were the sounds of what it would be like, were I not there at all.

Cancer surgery makes you become much too entangled with thoughts of your own mortality. I had to wipe away a few tears.

Paradoxically, life is both finite and infinite. A lifetime ends, but life goes on.
