Have I Done Well?

imageedit_69_3699443820What true artist does not believe…

“I believe that there is one story in the world, and only one. . . . Humans are caught—in their lives, in their thoughts, in their hungers and ambitions, in their avarice and cruelty, and in their kindness and generosity too—in a net of good and evil. . . . There is no other story. A man or woman, after he has brushed off the dust and chips of his life, will have left only the hard, clean questions: Was it good or was it evil? Have I done well—or ill?”

This is us!  Poor family, bad genetics, stories told, coffee bought down at the local inconvenience mart…

IN the end, we are what we make.  It is our choice to make peace with that.  Or, let our lives be nothing more than a mere spectacle in which there is nothing left to read?
