“I think about the Old Ones, that they have a past but no history. I think about the inevitability of death, and whether it’s not that very inevitability that inspires us to take photographs and make scrapbooks and tell stories. That that’s how we humans find our way to immortality. This is not a new thought; I’ve had such thoughts before. But I have a new thought now.

That that’s how we find our way toward meaning.

Meaning. If you’re going to die, you want to find meaning in life.

You want to connect the dots.”

Franny Billingsley, Chime
