Quietly running things behind the scenes. Just like the wizard, without all the hoopla.
The soul is the same in all living creatures, although the body of each is different. -Hippocrates
"We who choose to surround ourselves with lives
even more temporary than our own
live within a fragile circle, easily and often breached.
Unable to accept its awful gaps,
we still would live no other way.
We cherish memory as the only certain immortality,
never fully understanding the necessary plan..."
(The Once Again Prince, Separate Lifetimes, by Irving Townsend)
