Try saying "timelessness" 3 times fast--it's a bit of a tongue twister.
Since Webster's defines "timeless" as ageless, enduring, eternal, everlasting,immortal, imperishable, lasting, undying--
then "timelessness", the noun, captures that "timeless" state.
Perhaps it's akin to what happens when we hit the snooze on the alarm, wake up frantically thinking that an hour has passed--only tofind it's been a couple of minutes.
For me today "timelessness" refers to my disbelief that it's been 2 years since my grandmother passed. I was on a flight back to Rochester from a meeting in France, only to hear the news. It seems like yesterday that I visited her last in the Friendly home--always always upbeat and optimistic.
Beyond seeing on my blackberry a reminder of this date, today, in the office, I saw 2 delightful 80-something patients, both of whom shared the wisdom and love of life that my Nana had until her last days.
What greater a gift than to be asked to share my professional knowlege and experience in an effort to help them feel better, and to have them, in a sense, celebrate my special memories of my grandmother. Timeless memories!
Dr. Tomaino, thank you again for sharing your insight. Having a physician who care as you do about the well being of your patients is truly appreciated. I am thankful to have been under your care.
