Life is Useless?

Tim went back to bed after breakfast this morning with the Good Book. I went with him. I have been shaping Tim and Mandy to allow me on the bed to good result. I'm still not permitted there during the night but it's just a matter of time. Anyway, Tim isn't religious but he was in a bit of a mood so he read Ecclesiates out loud to me. It goes like this, "1:2 It is useless, useless said the Philosopher. Life is useless, all useless." I listened to a couple of pages of this misery when he got to, "3:19 A human being is not better of than an animal, because life has no meaning for either." At that I had to get up and walk out. I mean being on the bed is one thing but don't you humans try and draw us non-humans into your existential angst. I went out to the front verandah, lay in the sun and found that life has lots of meaning. I'm sure as soon Tim gets up and takes me out for a walk in the sun he will too see that life is abundant with meaning.

Life is great when there is meaning aplenty.

Personally, I think humans worry about too many useless things and don't see many of the REALLY meaningful things in life! :-)

Not much good about that book, I fear.

Ecclesiates is my fave, Ruby. Such poetry, such cynicism! He's the quintessential cranky old man: "Be wise, but not too wise: why shouldst thou destroy thyself?" But I prefer the Old King James translation: "Vanity, vanity, all is vanity, saith the preacher!"
