Things aren’t supposed to last forever. I know, I know… we ( the cultural we ) want them to. But no matter how hard we fight, it’s not supposed to.

I’m liking this trend to delete what you’ve made. The most recent,twitterspirit. It reminds me of life: conversations I can’t remember, forgetting where I put my keys, enjoying a moment because it’s fleeting.

And in the fleeting – we take time to share, the time to learn. We make an effort to engage our memory. We pass down stories and skills. We teach our children. We create an impression, and that impression is what should last.
