The purpose of an ice cube is known when it is created. The ice cube is taken from the freezer to complete the task of keeping something cold… and when the task is completed- the ice cube’s life is over.
So the ice cube, created with purpose, fulfills the purpose up to the very moment of its disappearing. As short as an ice cubes life is- the ice cube completes it s purpose for life, in those very short moments of life.
I would have to say that my life is very long when comparing my lifetime to an ice cubes.
I should have no excuse.
Silly personification, I know. But, interesting.
