“Oh, only for so short a while you have loaned us
to each other, because we take form in your act
of drawing us.
And we take life in your painting us,
And we breathe in your singing us.
But only for so short a while have you loaned us
to each other.”
– Aztec prayer

No, that’s fine. I appreciate it. Thank you, Mary!
