    But It's Ok.

    I often wonder what could have been. What would have been. What should have been...   But that's a different story. I believe in parallel universes. For every decision that must be made, a new one splits off holding all the events of the path not taken. knowing this...

    What Life Would Be Like

    We all have choices to make everyday, "what to eat" "what to wear" and other mundane things. There are those choices one makes at significant times that determine who we are or where we are. I make predictions time and again of what my life would be like if choices/things had...
