I have always enjoyed a good riddle. One of the most famous examples is the riddle posed by the Sphinx of Thebes in Greek mythology, “What goes on four feet in the morning, two feet in midday, and three feet in the evening?” The riddle was solved by Oedipus. The answer is man. Man crawls on all fours in the morning of his life, walks on two legs in the midday of his life and uses a cane (3 feet) for additional support in old age. My riddle for you to ponder, “What is the difference between having nothing and having everything?”
The season of gift-giving is definitely upon us. Black Friday and Cyber Monday cast a long shadow on the Thanksgiving holiday. I have been bombarded for weeks with ads touting the need to upgrade to the new iPhone 15. Its features are impressive. It can take a picture of me and rearrange the pixels to give me Brad Pitt’s face when he was thirty. Those twenty pounds I have been meaning to lose - gone with the click of a button. (Actually, with Thanksgiving let’s make that twenty five pounds.) Posed with a basketball glued to my hand I could make a little hop on nearly sixty-year old hamstrings and the phone can make me look like a member of the Houston Cougars Phi Slama Jama from the early eighties.
