mortality

What if you had eternity to live? How would you stay joyful?
Growing old, for us, isn’t a matter so much of bodily decay—that is fended off by efficient processes of automatic bioenergetic correction—as of increasing inward rigidity, a creakiness of the soul, a corrugation of the psyche, a stiffening of the spiritual synapses. One starts to feel sour and petty and crabbed. Life loses its joy and its juice. -Robert Silverberg, Travelers (free to read at Lightspeed magazine)

Writing Prompt: Write a scene about eternity from the point of view of an immortal character.

Journaling Prompt: If you could live forever, what would you change today?

Art Prompt: Immortality

Nonfiction / Speechwriting Prompt: Tell your audience a humorous story about getting old.
