One of my favorite poems, The Dash, tells how the length of our days is comprised of two dates, with a dash in between.  How you live your “dash” is the story you share - of motivations and goals, hurdles and challenges, blessings and triumphs, of family stories and intimate relationships, all woven together with a splash of things routine and ordinary.  

 

While some details and mostly biographical facts may be easily found, only you can provide the substance, the personal experiences, the rich context.

 

Your story is singular and genuine and uniquely yours.  Secure it for the treasure that it is.  And know that future generations will cherish your words, your reflections ... your life!

THERE WAS NEVER YET AN UNINTERESTING LIFE.  SUCH A THING IS AN IMPOSSIBILITY.
