I am not changed. Populations evolve, species evolve, and life evolves but not individuals. Shared characteristics passed down to us, to our progeny. Characteristics that allow us to flourish and them to propagate. Credit our ancestors credit evolution. But deleterious traits to and I anguish at the thought. We burden them, our kids. Blame our ancestors blame evolution.
Generational time is how we should measure success and failure. My boys are not entirely me. Sodden with my genes but uniquely different. I attempt to instill in them virtues that heredity only lays the foundation for. I also mediate the frailties in that foundation. Cracks in the code. No proper repair just patchwork. But it’s the greatest work I do.
To the generations that follow I will leave three filled seats in the boat. No “Fuck That Guy” descendants here. Measure my success my failures through them. It’s an honest metric. Time on water is dissimilar now to anything I experienced before them. The goals the outcomes different. I am changed forever.
