Our Children - The Secret to Our Immortality

Our parents cast long shadows over our lives. When we grow up, we imagine that we can walk in the sun, free of them. We don't realize, until it's too late, that we have no choice in the matter; they're always ahead of us. We carry them within us all our lives--in the shape of our face, the way we walk, the sound of our voice, our skin, our hair, our hands, our heart. We try all our lives to separate ourselves from them, and only when they are gone do we find we are indivisible. -Richard Eyre

I often think that I see parts of myself in my children. Even the ones that I have inherited by marrying the greatest woman in the world. Maybe our children are the secret to our immortality!
