    Curiosity Or Fear Of Long Term Commitment

    I have been blessed to be very curious about many things. It is this innate curiosity that  has led me to a very interesting life. And the more I learn the more I realize how very little I know. With hindsight I realized that I really wasn't a planner, but more of an opportunist...

    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...

    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...

    I Know I Do

    I think it's inevitable that we all eventually wonder whether we've made the right choices in our lives, including all of the "what if's." But the thing I have come to find is that "the path not taken" may not have been a better choice; it is simply a...
