Many people have asked me why I have a circle on my back...just a circle.
I tell them, "It is to remind me that we are whole before we begin", but even that doesn't approach the truth...which is I just needed to put it there.  I am not even entirely sure why.  

“I live my life in growing orbits which move out over this wondrous world, I am circling around God, around ancient towers and i have been circling for a thousand years. And I still dont know if I am an eagle or a storm or a great song.” 
Rilke

“The life of man is a self-evolving circle, which, from a ring imperceptibly small, rushes on all sides outwards to new and larger circles, and that without end. The extent to which this generation of circles, wheel without wheel, will go, depends on the force or truth of the individual soul.” 
-Ralph Waldo Emerson
