An autobiography in five very short chapters




CHAPTER ONE

I walk down the street. There's a hole in the sidewalk.

It is a very deep hole. I fall in ... I am helpless.

It isn't my fault.

It takes forever to find a way out.


CHAPTER TWO

I walk down the same street. There's a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I pretend I don't see it. I fall in ... again.

I can't believe I'm in the same place, but it isn't my fault.

It still takes a long time to get out.


CHAPTER THREE

I walk down the same street. There's a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I see it is there. I still fall in ... it's a habit, but my eyes are open.

I know where I am. It is my fault.

I get out immediately.


CHAPTER FOUR

I walk down the same street. There's a deep hole in the sidewalk.

I walk around it.


CHAPTER FIVE

I walk down another street.

Don't we all fall into that "hole" at some stage of our life? 😉
