if you think about it, our live are essentially books.
there’s the cover, a canvas of our own creation,
painting portraits of our lives, as we’d like them to be observed by those around us.
then there are the pages, chapters spilling our every wish, every desire, every mistake ever made. once written, they are inscribed forever.
like those pages, we can become dusty and worn, our shelf life threatened by the ticking clock.
but in the end, we are all striving to be best sellers, all the while embracing the beauty and flaws accompanying our own personal narratives.
although not perfect, we, like books, are purveyors of purpose, meaning and love beyond the grave.
