Frogger

If I may say so, I don’t think it will be everything you dream of. I think it is always something else. With overlap, quite likely. But it’s the lilly pads. The surface of a pond represents mental possibility, everything you imagine you could attain. The lilly pads are what you can actually attain. From your vantage point as a frog, you can’t see very far, so all you can ever do is just hop to a lilly pad that is different from the one you’re on, but is one of the ones you can actually get to due to its closeness to your present spot. Hopefully this process will lead you to a lilly pad that is close to the point on the surface of the pond that represents what you consider ideal. If the lilly pad completely overlapped that point, I suppose you’d be perfectly happy. If it didn’t overlap completely, but it overlapped some, or was close to the ideal point, then I suppose you’d be pretty happy. But, even if you got close, in this analogy lilly pads are the only part of the pond you can stand on. You can’t necessarily jump to that ideal spot. You have to hope that it’s covered by a lilly pad.

Of course, in Frogger, I always make it past the street but I usually die in the water, so what do I know?
