“When we’re gone, all that’s left of us is what we’ve made. The things you and I make may not leave a visible footprint on the earth. But everything we make takes up space, creates noise, competes for attention. What do we want to spend more time with? What do we want to shape us? What nourishes us? What do we want to see grow? I think we all have an idea and we all have something we want to make for no other reason than we want it to exist. Something small or meaningful. You know what we get to do when we leave here? We get to go make things. Things that nudge the world a little bit, in what we hope is the right direction. We get to put a dent in the universe. This is a great job.”
