what have i really done?

Sometimes you look back and you see your life filled with stuff – people, little projects, big dreams, assignments, writings, projects, ideas, relationships, boxes, words, colours, lists, and you marvel at a life lived well and full.

And then another time, when quantifying your life in years, you look back and suddenly it all just seems like stuff- just STUFF- and you sift through it wondering, so where are the important things? Where are the things that shook the earth, shattered and clattered the status quo? Suddenly, I realize, that on the windshield of life, I really am the speck of dust, so very small, and maybe, just maybe, everything I did is nothing at all.
