What is truely impossible?

Blog Posted:6/25/2012 9:55:00 PM
The cliché "nothing is impossible" has been beyond over used. And in my personal life i have heard this about 6 times the past two days. This made me wonder, what truely is impossible? I'm looking for some clever ideas for things that simply can't be done. And dont say things like "run around the world in 2 seconds", i'm looking for unique and clever ideas. My truely impossible thing is try to describe a color to a person who has been blind his/ hers whole life. Go ahead and try, its impossible. How can you? I would love to hear yours, are you up to the challenge?

Just to try, I will try an explain a color to one who never seen a color before.
Um blue is soft, light, not dark. It's a cold color, not hot like a red or orange.....
Im going to stop now, this description doesn't work at all. They wouldnt know what a light or dark color is or the difference between a hot or cold color. Its just plain impossible.

blue is the smell of cold air, white is the touch of cold on your cheeks, red is the flush of embarrasment, black is the feeling of depression, orange the sun on your face, green is the grass in your hand...

Nothing is impossible was a misuse of the truth the first time it was said thousands of times ago. There is a whole world of impossibles but it's the possibles that are exciting. Joyce
