Life is kinda cool. It seems like I spend a lot of time thinking about and trying to figure out my purpose in life or if I'm really doing what I should be doing with my life. I guess I would get a signal or a sign if I weren't. Life is kinda like reading a book. Every now and again you will get the overwhelming urge to skip to the end and see if your hunches are correct or peek at how it all turns out. That only seems to happen when you're in a chapter that ss boring or seems meaningless. (like when Hawthorne goes on forever describing a tree or a meadow) You also get that urge when a person who is reading the same book as you, tells you how good it is once you get through those early chapters. It makes you want to rush to a point when you may not have the proceeding information to understand it. Some people even enjoy those chapters that you think are pointless. It's most like a book, when you finally get to that point where you are riveted with what you are reading. You can't take your eyes away from it and once you're done, you re-read that part to re-live some of the feelings that it gave you. Chapters like this make you want to keep reading, for the hope that there are more. There are always moments in life like that. You keep reminiscing and hoping that life has more of them in store for you. Just like no one can live your life for you; no one can read a book for you (if you expect to get anything out of it). I feel sorry for those who close the book and stop reading too soon, because they can't get past the boring or pointless parts. They missed a great story. I think it is our duty as human beings to act as a reading coach or tutor, to those of us who have problems reading or are afraid of the twists and turns of a good book. We can make sure they still enjoy the stories. Kinda like an Author's Workshop, "How To Write & Experience A Good Book." That's just my opinion, though and who the hell am I?
