It connects you to people.

It gives you some joy. It makes you happier. You'll say, 'That was easy.'" In the book Lucy defines a legacy as "something I create that connects and enhances lives now, and will continue to positively affect others when I'm gone."

They can be created in any size, he says.

"From tiny to monstrous, just by being in touch with your own talents, skills, values, resources. And, don't wait.'" Lucy provides examples of legacies, including creating a garden to a charitable foundation, in the book.

Lucy is a writer and producer who began his career in journalism with the CBC before starting his own media company. He's also the co-founder of Make-AWish Canada.

This marks his first book. Lucy has a book signing scheduled for May 10 at 1 p.m. at Black Bond Books in Ladner.

He has also put together a website, yourlegacysmile. com, which includes a forum where people can get ideas on how to make their own legacies.

"Legacies are about connecting, making you happy, doing good stuff and continuing on when you don't."
