The Narratives is a collection of short introspective essays written by an average guy in an effort to better understand himself, his life, and his relationship with the world around him while traveling the road of self-discovery. The Narratives II: Dusk Or Dawn, is the second volume in The Narratives series.
Vince Guaglione is a guy who asks lots of questions, not only of himself but of his society and the world around him. Although he claims he's found no real answers, that hasn't stopped him in his quest to gain perspective on a little something we call life.
When he's not at his real job, you can find him sucking down venti-sized coffees at a brisk pace his local Starbucks, thinking up new writing projects, or pondering his mystery questions of life.
Originally from Philadelphia PA, Vince now resides in Raleigh NC.
Pulled from my summation essay. What will we have left when it's all said and done? What will be be proud of? What will truly matter?
The Narratives II: Dusk or Dawn
When it’s all said and done, the only thing each of us will have left is a legacy. I remember, many years ago, to the days following my maternal grandfather’s death and the day of his funeral. He was a man with such a community presence that the flow of people into the funeral home during the viewing seemed endless, and the overflow at the church during the funeral mass was astounding. He was, without a doubt, a man whose reach into his community was far and wide. He had made a difference in the lives of many and had garnered a legacy, one that was bigger than he’d ever been truly aware.
