Good vs. evil, balancing the yin and yang, embracing the dark side, sinners and saints are all concepts that boggle the mind. Sometimes a girl just can't keep up! What does it all mean? What is our meaning and purpose? This princess is indebted to Douglas Adams. His supercomputer character, Deep Thought discovered after 7 1/2 million years of computing that the answer to The Ultimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything was 42. Sadly, The Ultimate Question is still unknown. Thankfully though, curious minds can still explore and ask. Thankfully also, ALL can be explored. From the intense to the inane, inquiring minds want to know. Hey, it beats being mired in existential angst! So what are some possibilities for The Ultimate Question?
  1. What does 6x7 equal?
  2. In his song, Blowin' In the Wind, Bob Dylan asked, "How many roads must a man walk down/Before you call him a man?"
  3. If a woman was born in 1967, how old will she be in 2009?

42 is the plausible answer to all of these Ultimate Questions. However, the woman in Ultimate Question #3 may have her own solution. So there's actual hope for those pondering life and all its questions whether ultimate or not so. Now finding it may be another matter! Hope! Hope! Here Hope! Where are you?!
