This morning, Holly and I were chatting about a book cover we are designing. It's a book about living with questions. It prompted us to ask each other what our two life questions are...that is, the two questions that, if answered, would make things alot clearer...or perhaps easier.
It was kind of a knee-jerk, on-the-spot thing...kinda like a Rorschach Test.
Holly answered that her's would be...
• How will I die? (...thinking of Big Fish and how it afforded him freedom...)
• How can I, with the skills/talents I have, bring the most goodness into the world?
• What am I supposed to do with my life?
• How are we to pay for it?
Funny that our questions were so existential and not theological or philosophical. Perhaps this shows what is really important to us.
What are yours?
