how

  1. will my life be traced after i gone if dedicated to creation? one person's memory of me is more sufficient than anything else i carve out, but i do not have this...?
  2. can i see myself living, alive, being — in the most banal, mundane of existences? how can i be present in a world and be witnessed without constantly signaling that i exist? do many people not die never having this?
  3. can i love the world better? can you ever love it enough?
  4. may i shape the web (or anything else with my hands) such that it may be a space of generosity, a space for gathering, a space for memory?
  5. will the life i live dignify the love that has brought me here?
  6. can i gather the people i love in one place?
  7. i accept that everyone and everything desires to be a loved thing, but how do you accept what happens when you don't get the love you request?


why

because even the most irredeemable things are deserving of love, including me
