The Peril of the Purple Panties – A Parable of Possibility Chapter 1
I awoke alone and confused. I do not know where I had been, where I was or where I was going.
I had a vague recollection of being in a warm dry place with others of my kind. Now I was out and exposed and alone. The who, what, where when and why of me were a total mystery to myself.
This was impossible. I closed my eyes and rubbed them and when I opened them again nothing had changed.
WHY was this happening to me… why me, why me!! What the heck was I supposed to do now!! I would give anything to go back to the way things were … if only I knew what that was. I was feeling pretty sorry for myself at this point and did not want to even get going to see what else was around. Ultimately I realized I do not give up easily and was ready to move on. This was a clue to my personality.
I picked myself up. What else is possible? If I had to re-invent myself I might as well make it good. What did I want to be when I grow up?
