What Would Survive Of Me?
If I died in a global cataclysm, what would survive of me over the millenniums?
I have a little metal dental work which might be scattered about in the dust of the ages.
The Earth would receive back from me such durable metal coins as happened to be in my purse; and also some jewelry of noble metals and gems; and also rare metals from my digital devices*; and also the copper, porcelain, and glass fixtures in my house. My three souvenir rocks would roll away.
Maybe lead from my pencils would survive me? My words?
