To Live in this World

Coba*
July 2003 - September  4,  2012


To live in this world
you must be able to do three things:
to love what is mortal;
to hold it
against your bones
 knowing
your own life depends on it;
and, 
when the time comes
to let it go,
to let it go.

- Mary Oliver
from In Blackwater Woods



*In honor of his Mexican heritage and his escuincle-like appearance - Coba was named after one of my favorite Mayan temples from my travels in Quintana Roo.
