The meaning of life. Hmm.
No shortage of theories out there on that one, I'll tell ya.
Everybody from Einstein to Col. Sanders has offered an opinion. And hey, who's to say who is right about it ... or not? Well, that one Big Guy but He's sorta letting us try to figure things out down here for now, methinks.
-Is it about working and playing hard to "get stuff" and live your best life?
-Is it about living well by being healthy in mind, body and spirit?
-Is it about a whole different life, in terms of an ultimate, more lasting destination?
-Is it about eating as much chocolate as you can, as often as you can, and with as much dogged determination as you can muster?
Maybe the meaning varies from human to human. Maybe it's all too deep for us to grasp. Then again, maybe Jimmy Buffet was right and The Hokey Pokey is All It Really is About?
If you ask Alexa, the voice-simulated virtual assistant by Amazon that is really just a verbal Internet search engine, the meaning of life, she's likely to give you an answer such as: “The meaning of life depends on the life in question: 42 is a good approximation.”
Great talk, Alexa. I'm thinking my pal's buddy, Jerry Ruggieri, Dad and human extraordinaire, who's about to turn 90, probably has a greater insight on it than most. Maybe we'll ask him.
I have a hunch the whole deal may be a little more profound than the Hokey Pokey -- hint: it's not the number 42, either. But if you're thinking more in terms of a higher purpose, I think you're going down (or up) the right path, Capisce?
Join me Sunday and we'll ponder it all together as part of my column: Chocolate, God, and Mr. Ruggieri
"See" you then!
