a tiger that devours me

2.2.18 ~ Fota Wildlife Park, Carrigtwohill, Cork, Ireland ~ Sumatran tiger

Time is the substance from which I am made. Time is a river which carries me along, but I am the river; it is a tiger that devours me, but I am the tiger; it is a fire that consumes me, but I am the fire.
~ Jorge Luis Borges

    1. Thank you, Kathy! We are so very many things, aren’t we? Going for my final radiation treatment this afternoon, bringing along the head cold I picked up in Ireland. I am the cold… I am the cancer…
