Oh, You Human.

Man, the glory, jest and riddle of the world.

Alexander Pope
Hello Beth
When is a monarch not a king?

Are you glorious? Of course you are, once you start reaching up to your potential and beyond it with outstretched hope and confidence, when you are standing on some pinnacle of life you never knew you could.

How many actors does it take to change a light bulb?

Are you a jest or a jester? One day you're one, the next day your the other. The greatness of man is the gift of a sense of humor, including the ability to laugh at himself. Humor turns on the lights in the dark places of life.

12 pear were hanging high.
12 men came walking by.
Each took a pear
and left 11 hanging there.

Are you a riddle? You are, to yourself and to the world. If we did not puzzle over ourselves every day, in one way or another, what would be the point of living. "Know thyself" the ancient wise man said. We can reach for the stars, solve problems and laugh, but understanding ourselves is probably the hardest task we poor, tardy, foolish and stubborn humans have to face. "Life's perhaps the only riddle that we shrink from giving up" wrote William Gilbert. Why? Because to give up is to lose, to quit the field before the game is over, to sacrifice our glory, to settle for less than we are.

Never give up.
