Why Not

When the book club began there were 10 people participating. Now there are sometimes as few as 4. We were talking about whether or not to continue meeting. I said, “Can we keep doing this with only 4 people?” Another woman said, “Why not?”

That’s probably the wisest sentence I’ve ever heard anyone say.

  1. Why not strive to get better with each endeavor. Adopting this philosophical approach, leads to focus and determination. Goals are accomplished with something in mind, and they are achievable when will is directed toward a focal point. Striving to get better brings out the best, and it answers why not.

  2. Frani picked up the phone and dialed. Lara answered on the second ring.
    “I can’t go to the movies tonight, Lara.”
    “Why not?”
    “My back went out, and I’m in pain.”

    Click. “Frani? Hello?”
