Sunday Dinner: Cycles


“Every good thing comes to some kind of end,
and then the really good things
come to a beginning again.”
Cory Doctorow



“Time has a way of eternally looping us
in the same configurations.
Like fruit flies, we are unable to register the patterns.
Just because we are the crest of the wave
does not mean the ocean does not exist.
What has been before will be again.”
Tanya Tagaq



“It’s all a series of serendipities
with no beginnings and no ends.
Such infinitesimal possibilities
Through which love transcends.”
Ana Claudia Antunes



“What was scattered
What was gathered
blows away.”



“I think that to one in sympathy with nature,
each season, in turn,
seems the loveliest.”
Mark Twain

“People can’t live with change
if there’s not a changeless core
inside them.”
Stephen R. Covey
