Calvin & Hobbes & Whoosh


We join Calvin and his tiger friend, Hobbes, as Calvin sets up a premise.

Having established his concept, he now asks a series of probing questions.

Leading to a visual depiction of an existential crisis.

Not surprisingly, Rich Mullins has a meaningful song to sing about how quickly life passes by and how we should respond to that. Here's a sample of the lyric and a link to the song.

So much life is slipping past you
You better sink in and take a hold
So many things you say you think you'd like to do
About the things you think you know
Well, that road that's paved with good intentions
May never reach the streets of gold
No, no, no

So much love is on the inside
Better give in and let it out
Any fool could tell you why
But let the Spirit show you how
Speak your heart and maybe you could shed light
On the shadow of someone's doubt
Yeah, yeah, yeah

So don't hold out, don't let these chances pass you by
Here's your life, you're gonna get it right
Live like you'll die tomorrow
Die knowing you'll live forever, live right
Love like you'll leave tomorrow
Believing love lasts forever, live right

Truth is...In light of eternity, one person's lifespan doesn't even amount to a slab of concrete in a sidewalk. And yet, that tiny, blink-and-you'll-miss-it bit of time has a profound effect on eternity. (Less on the fleetness of life and more on the importance of week.)
