There is no other short that is in my mind right now other than the shortness of time.

I have just finished a pilgrimage through France, and the time just flew by, like a breath. Life is indeed short, shorter than we ever think, especially in our youth, but once it has escaped us, it just doesn’t not slow down anymore. Our time on this earth is indeed short, when compared to eternity, and the lesson to be learned is always knowing well enough not to exchange the short time of earthly life with the endless time of heavenly inheritance.

In this picture, a silhouette I took inside the Musee d’Orsay in Paris. Through the window, one can see the Sacre Couer on Montmartre, Les Invalides, and even a bit of the River Seine on the foreground. The big timepiece is a permanent fixture of what was then a railway station, now converted into this fabulous museum that features the impressionists, and other invaluable collections of sculptures, paintings and pieces of art, a real must-see in Paris.

This is my entry for this week’s Where’s My Backpack? Travel Theme Challenge: Short
