A Story for Everyone Rushing About...

A young man was walking down a winding road. The road seemed to be narrowing with every forward step he took. With growing concern about his selected path and destination, he quickened his steps.
While speeding his way down the crooked thoroughfare, he noticed a small child watching him from behind a tree. The child smiled at him, but the young man continued to pursue his course with fervor.
Panting hard and feeling anxious about the ever shrinking road ahead, he paused to rest. There was the child, still watching him with interest. The road continued to grow smaller and smaller, though never seeming to end. He stopped once again, and again, there was the child. The young man stepped off the path and walked up to the small child. The child looked up at him quizzically and asked, “What’s the hurry?” The young man considered this question for a moment.
He responded, “I’m worried about the pathway ending”
“So then,” said the child, “What’s the hurry?”
