We Shall Know

Don’t try to live Monday as if it were Friday. Or was it: don’t try to live Friday as if it were Monday?

As you readers perhaps have noticed, I enjoy a riddle. However, figuring it out often eludes my ability or patience or whatever that is which is needed to make it make sense. Isn’t that what we are always trying to do – make sense of our everyday lives? Often I ask myself, “what’s it all about, Alfie.” Does it always have to be only the backward glance where the answer lies? If so, then memory is the greatest and most marvelous attribute we have. Memories. That’s it. That’s all, up to now.


After now is only a speculation, a riddle yet to be experienced. All future memories to be made are concocted possibilities anchored in our yesterdays and all of its variations. So live Monday and wait for Friday. It will all be clear.

“For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.”

(1 Corinthians 13:12)
