Everything is a loop. Everything goes in cycles. Nothing happens that has not happened before. One man said that there is nothing new under the sun. A fancy way of saying that everything is old. A new invention is just a new take on what already was. What happens today will happen in the future, as it happened in the past.

I hate the fact that this is true. It makes everything meaningless.

My dad died last night.

He was sitting in front of the TV, watching the football game. As always. Like he had done every night for all of my life. It would be sad, if it wasn’t a part of the cycle.

You see, his dad passed away while sitting in front of the TV. And to make the circle whole, here I am, sitting in front of my TV, watching football. I am the same age as my father and grandfather were. Suffering from the same crippling disease as they did.

What do you think is going to happen to me tonight? If you are smart, you already know the answer to that question.

Because here is the reality. Everything is a loop. Everything goes in cycles.
