Often when faced with the ephemeral nature of life, people express the desire to ‘leave a mark’.
Perhaps our desire, our joy should not be in the futile quest for permanence, but in the impressions we leave on those around us. Those who are just as fleeting and ephemeral as ourselves, yet who have all the same fears, dreams, hopes, and yearnings.
Our journey is short and our mark light.
On this adventure of life, may our goal be to journey well, as curious and gracious sojourners. May we value personal interaction over distraction, intimacy over accolades, and strive to fully devote ourselves to loving and learning.
