Door knocker in Paris on the Ile de St. Louis
The Ouraborus is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent swallowing its own tail. It represents cycles that begin anew as soon as they end, a kind of eternal rebirth.

But sometimes, doesn't it just seem like what you're doing in life is just endless repetition, retracing old paths, unproductive, like a serpent swallowing its own tail?

What endless circles are you spinning in, this week?

Nice little architectural embellishment there.

Love that picture! I seem to be stuck in an endless loop of frustration with the actions of others. Must learn to let go and move on. Not my strong suit, to say the least...

I played golf yesterday and today.

Today, I realized that thinking I'm getting better is just like a serpent swallowing its tail.
