To infinity and beyond … how can one go beyond infinity?

Infinity is without limits, boundless, it is eternal. So how could one imagine going beyond limitlessness?

Perhaps the answer is in the hummingbird.

I saw one the other day, as I was scraping off my vehicle windows at -1ºC temperature and heard a noise above and behind me. Up on the deck of my neighbor’s house was a petite but quickly moving hummingbird, near a feeder. I paused, watching it’s movements, as my mind slipped to the ones that my father fed at his front window.

Later I did a little research on these small but mighty birds. Their wing movements are quite amazing, moving back and forth fifty to eighty times every second. Their wings move so quickly that they can only be seen with the use of special cameras. Their movements are not simply forward, up and down, but they can fly backwards as well. 

The movement of the hummingbird wings is in a figure eight … which really is the same shape as an infinity symbol. This seems rather perfect, as the speed of the hummingbird’s wings is almost limitless, their energy seemingly boundless.

Infinity and beyond … that’s also how far love can go. It does not end, but always keeps moving. Even after death, the love continues to go on, to infinity and beyond.

What we Leave Behind

After the ending, never regretting
Never forgetting, what we had between us
And when it’s over, it’s never over
Cause of those moments, never really leave us

What we take with us is love, love, love
