Often times , I find myself attempting to reduce an experience, a person , a phenomena , a relationship , my life , my perceived achievements or my lack thereof into a single dimension like one word or one number .

On second thought it is usually an inordinately inadequate measure of anything. One dimension is not enough to represent any of the above mentioned to a reasonable degree. 

Yet, I persist with my attempts , especially when I am disappointed or angry with myself , others or at life in general. Perhaps, my frustrations stem from the fact that life is too big , too grand and - at the risk of leaning on cliche's - too multifaceted for one number , word  or dimension to reflect, capture or distill.
