I feel like this quote spans a lifetime – in the beginning we’re eager for connection, to be understood; and then we want to leave our mark on the world, pass down a legacy.
What is your biggest dream about leaving a great achievement behind? Mine’s to have my published works (and my Mother’s posthumously.)

I’m 66. I’ll leave no legacy. It’s not something I’ve ever wanted.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have been seen, really seen, by the woman who agreed to marry me. That”s enough for me.
I wish you luck with your writing and you publishing. I think the connection between the imagination of writer and reader is one of best things about being human.
Thanks for the well wishes Mike! Even leaving a great impression on someone – like sharing a life with them I feel is leaving a legacy. You’ll always be remembered as a loving person. And that’s the best compliment possible.
