Is the desire to leave some kind of legacy, or the need to be remembered an exercise in vanity? Does thinking we must leave some legacy, either material or immaterial, lead to a fuller life? Any legacy brings with it an initial commitment, that of embracing it and giving it continuity, or rejecting and ignoring it. To what and to whom should we give continuity, and what threads should we break?
