Full Circle first appeared on My Write Side.
“Clever how the cosmos can, in a single portent, be ingratiating yet sadistic.” You stand in your own little universe, content and happy, not thinking about mortality when you discover one of your high school friends died. You are suddenly brought full circle, realizing how important it is to live every day and pack as much in that day as you can. You read the comments about this friend’s legacy and realize that in his 40 short years on this earth, he made each day count. His legacy of kindness and generous nature will live long beyond his memorial service. And it makes me wonder why I haven’t done more with my life.
What will people say about me when I’m gone? I can start building my legacy today. What about you?
This week’s Master Class assignment was brought to us by Steph, who chose the first line from the fifth chapter of Three Junes by Julia Glass. That line was “Clever how the cosmos can, in a single portent, be ingratiating yet sadistic.”
