The next thing you
think about after a
loved one's death
is your own and the
legacy you will leave behind.

For us commoners
not gifted with nobility,
treasures, popularity, notoriety,
and a chance-taken for
their own 15 minutes of fame,
we only have our memories
as legacies.

But alas,
with each generation that
passes so will the
the memories of our
minuscule existence disappear
into oblivion.

Memories are mere
electro-chemical sparks in
our brain cells anyway,
not unless your legacy
has been carried on into folklore
or mythology will anybody know
and care for your existence.

So i want to be an early bird,
and make this blog my memory,
that once on this earth,
in a blink of the universe's second
i existed...

I may not be able to do
or have done (past?) anything
earth shattering or magnificently
i may not have laid my life for others
or devoted its entirety to worship
or to scholarly woes


in my own little way,
this little speck that is me
was once/is part of the
greater community of humanity.

i stood witness
to greatness and have partaken
in its lows as well.

An apathetic participant,
a living contradiction.

I hope the webmasters
don't delete my blog too
early but as you can see
my only legacy is my lifestory...
