Skink (General) (Listen while you read)
Hurry along there. Why does everyone go so slow? Don’t they realise, don’t they know that time is everything; it’s not just a show!
Life is for living. Life is for ‘go’. Life is for ever; but only if you know that life is for living; giving everything a go!
So what’s now; hey? What’s now?
Don’t you mean; what’s new?
Nah; it’s easy to say what’s new…. Try saying ‘what’s now’, and see if you can come up with an answer.
Okay… I’ll give it a go.
What’s now….? Hmmmmm….. What’s now….? Do you mean what is now to be? Or, do you mean what is happening now? What’s now? Could you mean; what in the world is happening now? So many possibilities; I think you’ll have to enlighten me!
What’s now represents the here and now. Does it not?
Yes, I guess that is so.
Precisely; and this is what the skink represents; the here and now. What are you doing with the here and now? Are you making the most of your day? Are you pretending to be happy when in fact you are sad? Are you able to conceive of multiple ways in which to spend time doing things that you enjoy? These are some of the things that the skink represents; a little animal with such a big reflection. Is it not?
