Destiny Found

I was reading Umberto Eco, discussing how Borges had been an influence on him. He concluded talking about the differences between the two of them, declaring that the biggest is that while Borges was able "to use the most varied debris of the encyclopedia to make the music of ideas," Eco himself often feels as if he "blow[s] into an ocarina."

However, he ends on an optimistic note: "I hope that still someone will be found after my death who is even less skillful than me, soeone for whom I will be recognized as the precursor."

I have found my calling: the final destination in the decay of a literary heritage!
