The Hopeful Cellphone

As I sit here on my porcelain throne reflecting over my past week, I recall how I was oddly inspired by my cellphone one morning. I was in the basement locker room where I swim each morning and as I glanced at my cellphone I noticed the word “Searching….” Usually when I see my cellphone searching for a signal I am extremely frustrated. This oftentimes happens while I am out in the open and people all around me are blathering recklessly into their own phones.

However, this morning I found the “Searching…” message so hopeful. Here my phone has no chance of receiving a signal, but it continues to search for one regardless. It was as if no one was going to tell it that searching for a signal was futile and that it should just give up. This phone was going to continue to search for a signal no matter where it was and nothing was going to stop it from doing so. Such a single-mindedness of purpose! What might someone be able to accomplish if they were to be as focused on a goal such as my phone?

I have decided to keep my phone’s “Searching…” message in my thoughts as I continue my own quest towards achieving a spot at the 2005 Kona, Hawaii Ironman Championship. I am going to continue to search for my spot at this holy grail of races with my own single-mindedness, regardless of how outside factors say that this is impossible. I will be like my cellphone struggling to break through the steel, metal, concrete and glass in search for my own signal. If my cellphone can have hope of getting a signal in that basement, then I can have hope of getting my Kona spot. After all, “Nothing is Impossible.”

To be a noble benign being is to from a kind of openness to the mankind, an cleverness to trusteeship unsure things beyond your own pilot, that can lead you to be shattered in very extreme circumstances pro which you were not to blame. That says something very impressive with the fettle of the ethical life: that it is based on a trust in the up in the air and on a willingness to be exposed; it's based on being more like a weed than like a sparkler, something fairly fragile, but whose mere precise handsomeness is inseparable from that fragility.
