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.

    1. Thanks for your kind words. It was supposed to be about opening up a book and pointing to a word and then making a stream of consciousness from that word, which I failed miserably at.


  1. Jim as you said you’re unpredictable and you have missed the point on a couple of occasions before, but you have always hit the mark when it comes to writing fabulous posts…

  2. Love it! You make a post so fun and interesting whatever the point or not!
    I never thought about the pointing finger, where 3 are pointing back at yourself. Good point there! 🙂

  3. 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.
