Life is Like a Tube of Toothpaste.

Forrest Gump famously said “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you are gonna get.” True. And, I’ve been thinking about how life is like a tube of toothpaste. That full tube of toothpaste feels endless and abundant. It’s only when you come to the end of the tube do you treat those few remaining drops as if they are a precious commodity – not to be wasted. In this episode of the precarious podcast I encourage us to reflect on our relationship with time. How do we measure it? How much time makes a long life? Is that even the question to be asking? To quote Seneca, the Roman Philosopher, “Life is not short…it is long if we know how to use it.” Kind of like how we use a tube of toothpaste.
