R. I. P., Brighton

We who choose to surround ourselves
with lives even more temporary
than our own, live within a fragile circle;
easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps,
we would still live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only
certain immortality, never fully
understanding the necessary plan...

  1. Oh, no. I'm sorry, Holly. <3 RIP Brighton

  2. Memory, the only certain immortality! Brilliant. Thanks for sharing this. I will assume the dog has passed away. I'm so sorry. I have had my share of furry best friends gone. Still hear them padding about though, shaking collars for bones.

  3. What a precious dog. I loved seeing all the pics. Our Australian Shepherd is 14 years old and thinks he's still a puppy. His back legs can't keep up with the rest of him. Sorry to hear about Brighton.
