Bye bye paper membership cards
In a way, it can feel like a dance: moving forward and back, considering a sequence, working to hit the right numbers, not always succeeding. Life flows like a game of hopscotch, only one without rules or strategies. The only constant is the start: the square marked ‘1’, where it all begins and possibilities feel dauntingly endless. Whether you’ll reach Heaven or fall completely off the grid is a literal stone’s throw leap into the unknown. No matter, you’ve been here before. Grab that stone, walk over to square one, and see what number fate has in store for you.
