Gods - A 100 Word Story
March 22, 2010 flash fictionHey 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.
