How to immortalize an immortal

How would you immortalize yourself in marble?

Personally, I would have to say that if my personal sculptor is carving a person, thing, or event from the last month of my life, and I do mean the last month, then my answer is easy enough. I’d want my whole family. Me, my wife, my kids (I only have one so far, but we’re both still talking about lots), their kids, and if I do make it over 100 (yes, I’m allowed to type the numeric for that one) then perhaps they will have children as well. It’s an easy answer, but there it is.

I could have myself immortalized riding a surfboard down the face of a wave or shooting a barrel, and it wouldn’t take up as much space maybe, or perhaps sitting at a desk writing by hand, because I really like to do that; but none of that really means so much as those who are closest to me and my heart.

So Mr. Sculptor, please take a holo and do your worst in the name of Clan Ross. Make sure we’re all doing something goofy, because heaven knows that’s the best way to immortalize our kind. That’s our living colour.

So . . . I know that was pretty brief, but hey – them’s the breaks. What would your statue be doing?

  1. Great response …and I really love how you pose a question in response to the prompts … always interestingly written … or …. er …. put?! 😉

      1. Well thank you …. I enjoy talking back at ya – lol – actually, what I really mean is: conversing with you – and thinking about things. It’s more interactive – and I enjoy it more – so if I have the time, and the person – in this case, you – has the inclination, then it’s all good. 🙂
