This was an observation my daughter made about one of her toys. She was describing a creature’s make up in terms of the animals it resembled. At first her mom, (and I as well) thought she’d described this creature as more than a whole. Then we realized she was correct. She had not exceeded 100%.
I thought about renaming my site to ahalfasixthandathird, because I like how it forces one to realize the world’s a complicated place. That even as we try to understand an issue or event in simple terms, it’s really the sum of everyone’s understanding, that makes up the whole. What a first seems like different parts that don’t fit together are in fact a whole. The good, the bad, pretty and ugly. Cops and robbers, they all rely on each other to survive.
