Meetings, friends and distances

No matter how casual farewells with friends who live abroad appear to be, I am always struck by the stubborn power of geography that takes effect after the parting. Apparently, space structures our lives more than time… and there appears to be no way to overcome space except through spending time (and its derivates). I know you might not find this to be very deep or think that I should know this stuff from physics, but it is one of the things that have been on my mind today and which never cease to amaze me.

The pic is a close-up of an angel from a church bell in rainy Radovljica. Those of you who have seen Wenders’ Wings of desire (Himmel über Berlin) might remember that even angels have to sacrifice time(lesness) to conquer space ;)
