Our cyclical story repeats with no beginning or end. Where do we start? With our memories? Our earliest self reflection? We were alive before that. Conception? We didn't emerge into a vacuum. The atoms and energy that make up our bodies came from somewhere and that came from somewhere and all the way back it goes; same never ending chain into the future, too.

What breaks up this seamless circular background? A few details grounded in the moment: the light above me is humming, the air is colder as autumn asserts herself, the rain smells like New Orleans, and the inner hole grows larger by the day.
