The Circle of Life

The Circle of Life as I see it.

I'm inclined to philosophy today. Sometimes one needs to even things out. And weekends are as good as any time to do that. This is just a theory. We come into this world as Simba, strive to become like Mufasa as we grow up, and finally transform into Rafiki. In between, we assume the not so flattering avatars of Scar and his cronies, Sarabi, Shenzi and Banzai. In fact, we revel in their dark shadows through most of our narrow adult lives. If we get to Rafiki eventually, it'd be a miracle. Now Rafiki is a tough call. It's not as if we can't be like him—it's whether we want to be like him. There is a little big thing called fear that holds us back. Or would you rather be Zazu—neither here nor there and just about everywhere!
