Weekend Ouroboros: Mary-Kim Arnold Edition

Back at the beginning, in the early years of M. and me - before we imagined it would be possible to have a life together - he would say of us: the end built into the beginning, a snake devouring its own tail. 
Later, I told him: but you misread the symbol. It means eternity. It means life. Rebirth. 
It is the same, of course - cyclical. We are always beginning and ending. It matters, I think, where you choose to look at it. 
—Mary-Kim Arnold, "This Chill"
