If this is to be goodbye

I consider the following unlikely, 12/21/12 or not. However, in virtually any scenario in which:

A) the world ends, and
B) my words outlast me, to be read by unspecified future parties,

then this is all the legacy I desire:

Judge them kindly.

A little marginalia to explain "them":

One, it carries quite a different tone and meaning than "us." I don't want to go out with a plea for forgiveness, but for tolerance. Even if I'm one of the ones being judged, that's worth doing some semantic hair-splitting for.</p>

Two, there's something of the Steppendrachen in me that will never wholly depart, no matter how awesome humanity is.

I know. Life goes on. Though I can't help but feel a tiny twinge -- as soreth said: "a little part of me still hopes for the Changes tomorrow."

Changes won't just happen, you have to work and strive for them.

I hope to live long enough to live forever-- you'll be able to become a dragon if you want, via SCIENCE if humanity doesn't screw things up royally in the next few centuries...

We'll see how they do :P But yeah, if all goes well eventually we'll just live in a virtual heaven that we can do whatever we want in while in reality we are all just in a big square box sitting where some city used to be or maybe that is exploring space and scanning new environments for us to play in.

Or do it biologically. Or a mix. Or whatever.
