"Our time on stage is so brief." -Ruth Kirk, writer.
Just watched an elderly Kirk say this on a Channel 11 special on frontierspeople of the American west. She seemed close to tears. It made me wonder who she was addressing: the young or herself.
Our time *is* so brief. There are some people in particular in my life who I wish would realize this. They treat time like it's everlasting, but as I see it, so many memories are passing us by.
