Then one day as I went by . . . it was gone; it had finally collapsed. And within a few days all the remains had been removed, so now it's as if it never existed.
Very few things are permanent -- rocks, maybe, but even those get worn away and turned into sand. Certainly many of the things I love -- flowers, birds, a beautiful day, the seasons -- are here and then gone, and they leave behind a kind of nostalgia mixed with hope, that they will come again some time.
