Horizons

Horizons ... right now, how far ahead are you looking, seeing? Tonight? Next week? This year? Further than that?After you've left? After your children have left? Classically the answers would be somewhere in the regions of, respectively, 80%,15%, 4%, 0.9%, 0.1%.

And how far, looking back? Same percentages descalating with  distance.

Questions, questions. No answers, only opinions including my above and William Shakespeare's creations' below ...

"Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player, That struts and frets his hour upon the stage, And then is heard no more." (Macbeth)

"What a piece of work is man! how noble in reason! how infinite in faculty! in form and moving how express and admirable! in action how like an angel! in apprehension how like a god! the beauty of the world, the paragon of animals! " (Hamlet) 

Hamlet v Macbeth: Hamlet wins by a knockout.
