I like Spike Milligan's epitaph: See? I told you I was ill!

That's great. But a bit early to be thinking about your gravestone, I hope.

So why do you want to leave a stranger .. .. Out living others .. .. offending all ..

@Pop0159: This wasn't meant to offend anyone.

Meaning is: I have never felt at home on this lonely planet, and I never will. Just footsteps in the snow, gone next spring when the winter journey is over.

@helenS: now I understand ...
@Pop & @helenS What sort of footprints or other traces would you like to leave?

We regarded it as a big accomplishment if we could "Leave No Trace" after we departed from a campsite. I am not so sure others benefit from most traces that we might possibly leave behind. Sculptures can last a long time and some are beautiful. Operas and musical compositions can last forever. I am not sure duration is a measure we should employ. The question is important and whichever way we go, it is perhaps why artists resonate with the Christian promise of a permanent life. No lonely souls in heaven.

Nice, but here is the epitaph I want on my gravestone:
[b]He is STILL with you![/b]

[@1473,polyandrym66] Is this a message that is intended for a special individual?
