Wise That?

Today, south of Chicago’s Wrigley Field in early May, summer warmth has dropped in with little forewarning. It’s conducive to asking questions because asking questions is easy, like the weather and there is little requirement for answers, which is considerably more difficult. Here are a few questions:

1. What we see, think, feel in the now isn’t what we know later. Why is that?

2. Do processes have shelf lives? Is there a time when the way something is done MUST change?

3. If the present is all we can do a darn thing about, why doesn’t this come naturally?

4. When did it become fashionable to be unfashionable? Where did dressing up run off to?

5. Why is getting something such a thrill when giving is more satisfying?

6. Is fear something we can measure? If it is, why don’t we feel it in variety, like flavors?

About Mrs. Fitz

Hello! I'm Michele Fitzpatrick, a Chicago writer. Like our town, a work in progress. As a journalist, teacher and writing coach I think all of us live our stories and sharing them creates moments that remind us we're connected. And that is enough.
