There’s a song by an amazing group called “Kepano Green,” called “When I’m Gone.” It’s not really one of their best efforts in my opinion, but I certainly like the message of it (Sign up/Login to Lala to hear the entire song):

All of us are, on some level, concerned with our legacy. We don’t want our lives to be inconsequential. So what will you leave when we’re gone? Lives profoundly changed for the better? Warm memories of generosity? A string of broken hearts? A sense that you’ve profoundly changed lives for the better?

I’ve lived in the Boston area for over 20 years and there’s a strong possibility that I won’t be around for much longer. In the next two to three years, I’ll be figuring out exactly what it is I’ll leave behind when I’m gone and I’ll write about it here. I have big plans already, but it’s my follow-through that will be tested in the days to come. I hope that my next steps will be a love letter to the city that’s raised me and made my life possible.

Legacy is the only thing I have left.
