Day 137, May 17

"The goal is not to live forever.  The goal is to create something that will."  Chuck Palanuik

I admit that though I have given much thought to the act of creating, I haven't given much to the idea of creating something that will live forever.  What can possibly live forever?  We live in a disposable world.  Then I began looking at the idea with different eyes, a different heart.

Will my family, the generations of it, live forever?  Yes.  They will live long after I've passed from this mortal sphere.  Will a kind deed live forever?  Yes, again.  If it promotes another kind deed and that promotes another and so on.

Joy for today:  creating something that will live forever.
