I’ve always wanted to be immortal. To live a long and varied life and witness history unfold has immeasurable appeal to me. While the “Highlander” style of immortal where there can be only one does have it’s boyish charm, I’d much rather just live. Unfortunately things are not so. We only get a short span of years in the grand scheme of things.
Sometimes though, that can be enough to create your own little bit of immortality.
