This collection has existed in preliminary version for many years. The process of compiling this work into a book has brought completion and closure to a chapter of my life. I stand in awe of the rapid dissolution of everything in this world we believe to be real, including and especially myself. So this collection is a little dalliance into appreciating the fleeting and beautiful transitory nature of this life.
I encourage you, dear reader, to experience deeply the treasures of your existence!
All is so fleeting, so utterly precious…
