Gods – A 100 Word Story

Hey folks, no audio this week from me – though there will be another reading in Second Life (more on that in a day or so). But it’s also that time of the week, so check out this (sort-of) story with the topic “Gods”.

We dream of immortality.

We lost it in a Garden, and sought it in a Fountain.

We look to find immortality in our children, hoping our children will be as uncountable as the sand on a beach or the stars in the sky. We seek immortality through art, music, books.

That will not happen. In three generations, our names will be forgotten by our great-grandchildren, our works dust.

I teach my son my ideas. My thoughts become part of him. He will share them throughout his life.

My ideas will spread through the world, and I will live forever.
