Given directions to the ferry, a man was told the path was ‘all down hill’. His response? ‘Just like life’.
What do you think he means? Does this hold positive or negative connotations?
We think it can be understood a few different ways – all of which are right.
Is it because life is a down hill slope where the faster you go the more it seems out of control and you miss some of the wonderful things as they fly by? Or maybe it is that you slowly slide through life. After battling to climb up the hill the slide down the other side is smooth and easy.
Maybe it is a bit of both? Yeah, definitely a bit of both.
Just a little food for thought.
