How will you be remembered, or specifically how would you like to be remembered? This was a question posed to me by my friend Carolyn
Apparently, I’m so laid back I am horizontal, so I guess out of all the photos this would be the one I would pick. As it turns out, I found this a very difficult question but to be brutally honest my answer was in fact that I don’t really care. The Princess used to say, “It’s always all about you.”
To which I replied, “It always has been.” I mean, it is my life isn’t it? 😂
When I was a nipper I guess I would have wanted to be remembered as a kind of explorer, daredevil, tough guy, lover (well, maybe lover came later😉)
But as you get older none of that seems so important, or is it that you’ve achieved those things in a roundabout way? And so you’re complete? I can still be a bit ‘shonky’ (the Princess’s description from years ago meaning corrupt.) These days she has a habit of muttering, ‘and the legend continues!’
I’ve always done right by people as best I can. I think I’ve kept my integrity, although the education system tried to steal it and failed. I guess at the end of the day if I had to choose something. It would be cool if someone said, “Remember, Charlie?” and it brought a smile to everyone’s face.
Now, that can interpreted in many ways 😘😂
