The sun sets on another day…
Sunset was in and out of the clouds until the pink splashed along the horizon and made me smile. I laughed a the fun of it all, and smiled even more as the colors slid across the horizon.
You’re sitting in a room with an all southern view. A bear walks by. What color is it?
Seems pretty straightforward, but maybe there is more information necessary. After all, are there windows on all four walls? Can you even see the bear? Does it matter if it is a big bear or a little bear? What if it is a teddy bear?
Dumb questions if the room is a glass box, then you have to be in the North Pole, right? So the bear is white? Makes sense, but right and wrong do not always apply. Right? Or am I wrong?
I find myself in a curious situation sometimes where I question right, wrong, and various other grey areas. The basics of right and wrong are pretty clear, well, as clear as they can be, but there are other options. After a discussion today I saw a series of secondary events that redefine right and wrong. Perhaps right is living a positive moral code and wrong is not. That seems easy enough, but where do we draw the line? That is the question I am considering now. If you have a good answer, I would love to hear it. My answer for now is if you hurt someone else or yourself it may be wrong, if you do not, it may be right. Wow, that leaves a lot of gray. Think about it.
So as the sun sets on another day I think I will consider the moments for a while, and enjoy the idea that right and wrong are finite. Otherwise I may be stuck in an infinite loop of possibilities. I hope you have a clear answer, and try to do what’s right, no matter what.
Sleep sweet, love life, and what?…
