i’m alive

December 4, 2009

I FINALLY finished this personal project.  PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE check it out on my site here.

I sought out this personal project to gain wisdom and insight from my elders. Oftentimes, I believe that American culture forgets and almost belittles this generation, which carries invaluable advice to be shared.

I met so many amazing people while working ont this projet. A few had me almost rolling on the floor laughing with their jokes, and others made me want to cry. While the vignettes may be short, I hope that their personaities shine through. I heard so many different responses to “What has been yoru greatest life lesson,” but the underlying theme was to live life and love others. I titled this piece ‘i’m alive’ because I felt Edward summed it up the best by this response. I don’t know if he understood the question, but to me it symbolized that even though he is old, his life isn’t over.
