Amichai: Half way through the trek to fifty, a tiny broken sea shell is swept up on this virtual beach and hums the tune eternal: I've been with you from the very beginning and I'll be with you until the end of time.

25 is Netzach of Netzach - eternal eternity, greater than any single day, no matter how grand, grander than any of us can imagine and only manageable in little bits, like palms holding sea water, a cup of ocean, lifted up to endless skies.
