Three words: Life Goes On

just a girl who wants to laugh her way through life.


--“I’m here to collect my beloved Damon and Stefan is just helping me.”—Elena Gilbert, pg 406, The Vampire Diaries; The Return: Shadow Souls Volume 2--

How often do you look back? Really reflect on what you’ve done. The insignificance of it all. Pointless arguments, inside jokes, funny haircuts. But do you ever wonder how you will be remembered? Or if what you’ve done and what you’re doing means anything at all? What will your songs sound like when you’re dead and gone? Will tears fall when the last note is sung? And how will your story be told? Will your words leave a bitter taste in their mouths, or will they even remember you at all? Compassion. The concept is rather simple. Most know what it means to be civil, but there truly is a fine line between sweet and sour. Give too much of yourself away and you’ll be all used up, not enough and no one will be around to share this with. So what is it that motivates us to be better, gentler, more refined? I’d like to think it’s those close to us, close to the heart and soul. Those who carried you to the car after you puked on their shoes. Those who took the blame for breaking the window when it was you who cast the stone. Those who will be by your side when reality knocks on your door, both good and bad. But more importantly, those whose stories you will share with your kids, and grand-kids, and their kids, and their grand-kids, in hopes to somehow keep this all alive. Chivalry, decency, kindness, compassion, desire, strength. How will you be remembered?

Yes, I saw Twilight — my granddaughter made me watch it, she said it was the greatest vampire film ever. After the ‘film’ was over I wanted to smack her across her head with my shoe, but I do not want a (tell-all) book called Grannie Dearest written on me when I die. So instead I gave her a DVD of Murnau’s 1922 masterpiece Nosferatu and told her, "Now that’s a vampire film!" And that goes for all of you! Watch Nosferatu instead!
