Liable to disappear

Liable to Disappear — It's the crux of life, of holding something in my hand for a moment and then — it's gone. Like others, I’ve lost people and animals I loved, failed at relationships, felt utterly disappointed with humanity, lost parts of my body to cancer, and watched the ongoing destruction of nature. And because of these things, I understand: The world is gloriously beautiful and my time here is precious and brief.
