The relationship between beauty and fragility is no big secret. No big epiphany, no big necessary explanation, and no big deal really. Though it’s amazing how often it crops up, and how seldom I reflect on it …… Like life itself, cosmically speaking, a breeze on a hot day. Like you. Like me. Like inspiration on the heels of the smallest little thing. Like everything worth anything. just a glimpse of it on the bank of the river, and a memory of it around the bend. How many I’ve seen– how many we’ve all seen– and how many I’ve only heard of.
