Life Reduced to a Thousand Words

pen-and-paper  2,481,883,200.

That’s how many seconds, moments, and pages that fill the average person’s story book. Life is a numbers game. 672,768,000 breaths, 3,363,840,000 heart beats, and 216,262,5000 steps you take can be reduced to 1,000 words, a few moments, and one photo shared alongside the black and white ink strangers spill their morning coffee on while they skim your last moments before work. Many people would agree this is a form of tragedy, reducing a life to a thousand words. But the real question arises when you begin to wonder if being remembered by few words is a worse tragedy than your story being lost forever.
