What Is The Point

Without nipples, breasts would be pointless.  How is that for not beating around the bush, I got straight to the point.  When their compass broke, many of the sailors felt like there was no point in continuing, but the North star pointed their way.  A point is a zero dimensional object, because it has no length, no width and no depth.  Every time you point a finger at me, you are pointing three fingers back at yourself.  Sometimes I feel like I am just going through the motions and there is no point in my life, but then I realize that life is about the journey, not the destination.

Update: After reading some of the other posts, it seems like I missed the whole point, well better luck next time.

Written for 11/3/18 Linda G. Hill’s ‘Life in progress’ Stream of Consciousness Saturday where the prompt is “point”.

  1. I have Richie Havens in my music playlists.

    And that’s a great song!

    I wanted to include a third version —
    one from a movie album. Can’t find it anywhere.

    I’m quite happy with the following two nevertheless.
