The Intersection of Science, Art, Music & Humanities

Parenthesis in Eternity

Sunday, June 11, 2017


Goodbyes are only for those who love with their eyes. Because for those who love with heart and soul there is no such thing as separation. —Jalaluddin Rumi 

On Tuesday evening June 6, a leader among men, a Biosyntrx scientific advisor, and one of ophthalmology's finest, Dr. Roger Steinert died in his Colorado mountain home in the arms of his beloved wife, surrounded by family and dear friends. His brilliance, grace, humor, commitment to the greater good, and difference making impact is being honored by friends and colleagues worldwide. Our sincere condolences to April and the entire Steinert family.


Because Roger loved classical music, we chose to feature Van Cliburn playing Debussy's Clair de Lune for today's Sunday Morning Stop at the Intersection of Science, Art, Music and Humanities. 


The timelapse video speaks beautifully to the geometry of light, and the silence between the notes provide a much needed pause to reflect and process meaning. 

This existence of ours is as transient as autumn clouds. To watch the birth and death of beings is like looking at the movements of a dance. A lifetime is like a flash of lightning in the sky, rushing by like a torrent down a steep mountain.

We have stopped for a moment to encounter each other, to meet, to love, to share. This is a precious moment, but it is transient. It is a little parenthesis in eternity. If we share with caring, lightheartedness, and love, we will create abundant joy. And then, this moment will have been worthwhi
