The secret to immortality could be anything. Every time I show my kids something I recall from my childhood, I also wonder if my parents experienced memories of their own childhoods when they shared those little things with me. As Terry Pratchett once wrote, “No one is actually dead until the ripples they cause in the world die away…” This comic is from Lunarbaboon, of course.
I don't remember which comedian it was, but I like this: "my goal is to live forever. So far, I am succeeding!"
Thank you, Miss C., for bringing up Sir Terry. My girlfriend, who passed away from Covid in December 2020, introduced me to his writings, and later on to the man himself. And I have been trying to be someone who keeps stirring up ripples on the pond on her behalf.
I am so sorry, Bill. May her memory be a blessing.
