Before the game is over there are a lot of differences between the king and the pawn, but as the old Italian proverb says:
And once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
That is some philosophical fodder to contemplate on this day that Prince William and Catherine Middleton marry in an amazing spectacle. Their wedding was very different from mine. William’s life is very different from mine. However, when it is all over, we both go into the box.
What I take from this fact is that both William and I can matter on this side of the box if we live in a way that makes a difference. How should we then live?
That is what having a Forward Story is all about.
Best wishes to the royal couple and to all of the pawns who will bind their lives together this weekend.
