Every so often I am stunned at how like my mother I am becoming in some very fundamental ways. Following not far behind that awareness is the utter knowing of the ways I am a replica of aspects of my father, so like him I might as well be him. But . . . my parents are very different from one another. I am a living, breathing amalgamation, and that is where all the hope for life exists, in the knowledge that the unique combination of two different 'codes', if you will, has never been here before, not like this, not like you.
Each one of us is potentially 'the hope of the world.' (No pressure there!) By carrying elements that are so different and getting them to work in combination, that is how evolution has its way with us. Add a big dose of free will to do what we will with our potential and you have what can only be described as the keys to a very grand adventure. We are all Indiana Jones.
