I’m thinking of getting a tattoo. When I mentioned this to my husband, his eyebrows popped up. “You, a tattoo?” he asked, “What kind?”
Not the usual kind. I’m not interested in a heart or flowers or a skull and bones. I want the words Memento Mori tattooed on my arm. It means, remember that you have to die. I want a reminder not to waste my time, to be fully present in whatever I am doing and to make every effort to leave a legacy I can be proud of.
And here, you have the same reminder. What do you want to be remembered for? What will your legacy be?
The road is easier together,
