This post is for Paul. He’s the author of my most favoritest blog phrase ever: ‘like eating apple pie with a shit fork’, and a sage of, amongst many things, the role of intentional pain in humour.

Recently he’s shared a lovely lesson inspired by his grandmother Mimi.

It made me think about the kind of lessons we leave behind.

I like the notion of those lessons being the afterglow of a life.

I think a spirit that has touched you continues to provide guidance  and can light the way and continue to delight long after the physical has passed.

While you are are here rage against the dying of the light: build a bonfire; create a pathway of illumination; leave a glow that’s visible from space.

Start today.

Katie- Thanks so much for writing about this. As always, you are appreciated.

“While you are are here rage against the dying of the light: build a bonfire; create a pathway of illumination; leave a glow that’s visible from space.”

And, that’s just an awesome way of saying it.
