Today I donated the 8 maps I was commissioned to produce to the Library of Congress’ Geography & Mapping Division. I must say for the first time in my life I feel that my work, my existence, now has longevity to it. As in when I die, my work will live on. While the cartographic collection of over 5 million maps now has only 8 more maps, there is something truly special about knowing that the work I did in my short life will be remembered forever. After I left the Library of Congress I took a long walk to the Archives metro to take in the beauty of it all.
