I will be good and try to read nothing deeper than surface value.

But, dare I say, "Open Up" offers a worthy sentiment!

Our choices are sometimes so vague..we just find itt hard to sticking to one path...that it becomes difficult to have it function the way it should when it hits reality..

I took it for the face value humor, but also thought it sounded like sometimes we choose a path in life, a certain derech or profession or something, but sometimes later you realize that it's not helping you and you have to adapt.

I guess everyone sees things through their own lenses... can you tell I'm thinking about a carreer change?!

I also had to read it twice over until I caught it... :-)

But I didn't think it was funny at all...more melancholy, like "oh, great, here I go and make a wrong decision again..."

M00kie is right though--improvisation makes life so much more enjoyable. Just don't jump into your soup bowl, aright?

ohmygosh chaverah!!!! can i laugh at your comment?! (i hope so!) (because i did!)

david, i think life has many riddles. these riddles draw things up to the surface, from deep within us.

if something is vague, maybe you need to refine it?

Thought this lined up with the fork in the road....

"Ever since G-d told our father Avraham, `Go from your land
etc.' (1) and it is then written `Avram kept travelling
southward,' (2) we have the beginning of the mystery of Birurim.

By decree of Divine Providence man goes about his travels to
the place where the "sparks" that he must purify await their
redemption.

Tzadikim, who have vision, see where their Birurim await them
and go there deliberately.

As for ordinary folk, The Cause of all causes and the Prime
Mover (3) brings about various reasons and circumstances that
bring these people to that place where lies their obligation
to perform the Avoda of Birurim."

Bas_Melech...
it can be taken for the face as well..as the deeper value...
Good luck with ur career change...
But I was thinking just the opposite..
People make choices without commiting to it completely...thus being stuck with 2 prongs...

scraps...
no ones looking..u can drink from the bowl...

m00kie...
lol...
I say...amen
just not in company..

chaverah...
hmm..dont know about that..
But it can feel like that sometimes...

Thanks for that vort..
People are constantly making choices..unfortunately..sometimes..it becomes so second nature..that we can lose our Bechira..
