“It is said that the greatest longing in the human soul is to be remembered,” offers Jane Stahl, Studio B’s Director of Community Relations. “I wanted our writers and artists to explore what will ‘remain,’ something about us that we hope to pass on—whether it be a tangible item or an example unique to our character or reputation to guide those who follow us. I hoped some would explore what foundations or expectations have been left by communities—families, hometowns, nations—etched as their marks on our lives,” she continues.
“Legacies can inspire and energize, bring joy and fond remembrances. These legacies mean dreaming big with the intention of changing the world for the better. Some, however, wound us, tear our hearts and the fabric of our communities and remind us of the profound and lasting impact we have on one another. In the end, legacies, large or small, remind us that none us gets out of this life alive and that our lives are enhanced by being mindful to make the best of every moment,” Stahl concludes.
