The StoryScope of Legacy

FOR the World,
WITH the Planet, and
FROM the Whole


Walking In

In the grand tapestry of living legacy life, we are story sharers as we are story tellers.

Our existence is not just a collection of moments; it's a narrative, a legacy that we weave every day.
This narrative, like a kaleidoscope, can be viewed through different lenses:

  • wide-angle telescope that encompasses the wholeverse (universe)
  • narrow-angle microscope that delves into the minutiae of our daily existence
  • a stethoscope to hear our heart beat and our lungs inspire and expire
  • now, a storyscope as we discover, shape, and share our stories for the world, with the planet, and from the whole. 

For SoloAgers 55+ years young, professionals, paraprofessionals, educators, and creators, the concept of legacy takes on a special significance. It's about more than just what we leave behind; it's about the living impact we make for the world, the harmony we find with the planet, and the mysteries we explore from the whole of existence.

In this article, we embark on a journey through the StoryScope of Legacy, dissecting its dimensions FOR the World, WITH the Planet, and FROM the Whole.

Understanding the StoryScope

Our lives are stories waiting to be told, narratives that unfold with each passing day.

The metaphor of "StoryScope" invites us to view this narrative through different lenses. Just as telescopes reveal the vastness of the universe,  microscopes uncover the intricacies of the microscopic world, stethoscopes listen to our vital sounds of living, our StoryScope allows us to explore and find the full spectrum of our daily existence.

Our daily lives resemble a kaleidoscope, with each decision, action, and interaction contributing to the ever-shifting, meaningful pattern.

As SoloAgers and seasoned professionals, you have a unique perspective on life's twists and turns. Your legacy is not only a reflection of your past-present but a blueprint for the future-present.

Legacy: The Useful Whats

Legacy is often associated with material wealth, but it extends far beyond possessions. Legacy comprises the "useful whats" we leave behind, including our time, effort, and money. These elements are the building blocks and seedbeds of our legacy, and how we allocate, plant them shapes the stories we share.

For SoloAgers, who have accumulated a wealth of experiences and knowledge, legacy is about passing on wisdom and lessons. Your is about preserving your story as it is about empowering others to write their chapters more skillfully. As professionals and educators, your legacy resides in the work you shared, the values you instilled and the innovations you sparked.

FOR the World: Humanity and Ethics

One crucial dimension of legacy is "FOR the World." It's about the mark we leave on humanity. As SoloAgers, your life's journey has provided you with unique insights and a deep understanding of the human condition. Your legacy can be a testament to your empathy and ethics.

As professionals, paraprofessionals, and educators, your legacy is profound. Your ethical decisions, philanthropy, and contributions to your communities create ripples that extend far beyond your immediate sphere.

WITH the Planet: Wild Kin and Ecology

The second dimension, "WITH the Planet," focuses on the planet ecosystems and our relationship with the natural world. For SoloAgers, the connection to the planet becomes increasingly vital as you reflect on the legacy you leave for future generations and the intergenerational conversations you unfold.

The concept of "wild kin" encompasses all living creatures, emphasizing our interconnectedness with ecosystems. As creators and professionals, you have the power to shape sustainable practices and promote ecological stewardship. Your legacy can be one of preservation and harmony, leaving a planet that thrives long after you've departed.

FROM the Whole: The Unknown and the Known

The dimension "FROM the Whole" urges us to contemplate the vastness of existence. As SoloAgers, you've accumulated a lifetime of experiences and knowledge, yet there's always more to explore. Legacy extends into the unknown, encompassing both the mysteries of the cosmos and the depths of human understanding.

Your legacy, too, can be an exploration into the realms of the unknown, inspiring others to embark on journeys of discovery. Whatever your platform for sharing - writing, sculpting, knitting, fixing, advocating, etc. - your contributions can expand the boundaries of human concepts and practices.

Weaving the Three Dimensions

The beauty of the StoryScope of Legacy lies in its interconnectedness. The dimensions of legacy - FOR the World, WITH the Planet, and FROM the Whole - are not isolated but interwoven. Your legacy isn't confined to one dimension; it's a tapestry woven for, with, and from all three.

Moving Forward

In your Next Fifty, as SoloAging (SoloLiving) professionals, paraprofessionals, educators, and creators, you possess a wealth (and wellth) of insights, ideas, interpretations, investigations, and inquires.

Your legacy is a gift for the world, a harmonious dance with the planet, and a quest from understanding the entirety of existence. 

As you reflect on the narrative of your life - your storyscope, remember that your legacy is not limited by time or location. It's a story that continues to evolve, resonating with the heads, hearts, and hands of those you touch.

Your legacy, like a kaleidoscope, creates beautiful patterns that enrich the world, nurture the planet, and unravel the mysteries of the whole.
