Life on a Polka Dot is my attempt at writing about things that relate to my life. I stole this idea from my sister, who originally came up with the concept. I think most of us would like to believe that we are significant players in this short existence we inhabit. Maybe we need to to come to terms with the notion that we’re all just specks – on the corner of the Earth that we inhabit.
Have you ever watched Horton Hears a Who? The kangaroo refuses to believe Horton when he says he believes a whole community exists on a speck. At the end of the movie, the narrator says:
And so, all ended well for both Horton and Who’s, and for all in the jungle, even kangaroos. So let that be a lesson to one and to all; a person is a person, no matter how small.
I mean, for all the kangaroo knew, her world could also be viewed as just a speck by someone else. It’s all relative at the end of the day. After all, my small little world is big to me.
