 I wish I could leave you certain of the images in my mind, because they are so beautiful that I hate to think they will be extinguished when I am. 
Well, but again, this life has its own mortal loveliness. 
And memory is not strictly mortal in its nature, either. 
It is a strange thing, after all, to be able to return to a moment, 
when it can hardly be said to have any reality at all, even in its passing. 
A moment is such a slight thing. 
I mean, that its abiding is a most gracious reprieve.
