Great expectations

Monday, February 16, 2009

We all have expectations of what is going to happen in the future. What is going to be the next? It is impossible to figure out the unknown. The best way is to let time tell. As an experiment, I put a used shoe in an aquarium and let my friend draw his expectations of what was going to happen with the shoe through time. His drawings said more about how the water disappeared rather than the transformation of the shoe. The result after four weeks showed something completely different.

My conclusion is, we always have thoughts and ideas about how things are going to turn out. The fear of disappointment and the dream of the perfect end makes us forget the surprising. The so called “great” expectations.
