The Fragile Circle


“We who choose to surround ourselves with lives more temporary
than our own live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.

Unable to accept its awful gaps, we still would live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only certain immortality, never fully
understanding the necessary plan.

The life of a horse, often half our own, seems endless until one day.That day has come and gone for me, and I am once again within a somewhat smaller circle.”

– Irving Townsend ‘The Once Again Prince’
