    We’ll take a slight detour to get back to the beginning…but back we shall (with a brand new Shining adventure to tell). :thumb:

      When I think of this topic it can sound a little dark, that is unless of course you are repeating something you love to do. Mind you, imagine what life would be like to be a tire....."the circle of life".

        I think the tire analogy is perfect on so many levels. Yes, it repeats its function...over and over. But, it also has direction and moves based on this repetitive function. It travels and sees the world (as best a tire can). It has a beginning and an end...and a wild ride in between. If it ceases its repetition, it goes nowhere.

        But speaking of dark and repeating something that we love to do... it's time for some coffee.

          Geez bud, you took my tire example and actually gave it a meaningful life!!! Ye work wonders!! (never even thought about all the great travel opportunities!) Imagine if we are talking airplane tires!!! I'm getting a wee bit jealous, and I will certainly not mention it to my wife, cuz she might just apply to become an airplane tire....she does love to travel!!


          Oh yes, is there a better repetitive task than drinking coffee??? I have one as I speak. The aroma, the flavour, the "think" aspect of it all. Forgive me, but I still am thinking about this.......



          It would be such a nice "routine" thing to have, along with my java!

            Airplane tires! There you go! They probably see more of the world in a month than most people do in years. That reminds me, at the California Science Center in Los Angeles, they have the Space Shuttle Endeavor on display. While you can’t touch the actual spacecraft you can touch one of its used tires. Just touching something that was in orbit was amazing - the incredible journeys of the various things that seem so otherwise mundane.

            I think it speaks genuine truth – what appears on the surface to be monotonous repetition, is at some level, the sum of its function to the system as a whole. I thought your tire analogy is such a perfect representation of this. And like tires, people go bald as they age, lose some of their grip, and need periodic patching up!

            Our lives are so often filled with trivial monotonous repetition…yet, our journey through life is miraculous beyond description. Like apple fritters and coffee. :thumb:

                "I don't know where I'm going
                But, I sure know where I've been
                Hanging on the promises
                In songs of yesterday
                An' I've made up my mind,
                I ain't wasting no more time
                But, here I go again
                Here I go again"

                  Sometimes repetition makes us feel assured......

                          Even a gif likes repetition.
