Again with the regrets!


No big ones. I'm occasionally curious about various "might have beens," however:

What if I'd been more diligent/rational/mature about selecting colleges to apply to? To attend?
What if I'd canned our realtor at the first sign of incompetence (when we were selling the house in Boston)?
What if I'd returned to the UK to study poetry at Magdalen college? Or Kung Fu with Ray Smith?
What if I'd taken Fulbright and Rhodes applications more seriously?
What if I'd left defense contracting sooner?
What if I'd pushed to go to Kwajalein?
What if I'd gone to Yugoslavia despite my then-fiancé's objections? Or bought the Murano glassware?
What if I'd published some of that analysis I did at St. Catherine's?
What if I'd declined to move to Florida?
What if I'd taken the other job, the easy one around the corner from where I lived?
What if I'd bought that penthouse around the corner from where I worked - and across the street from the dance studio where I took lessons a couple of years later?
What if I'd responded to that intriguing gentleman who was so taken with me but who seemed a bit too old?

I dunno. I like myself pretty well, and surely I'm the sum of my previous experiences. I'd be a different person if any of those might-have-beens were real.

Of course, there are lots of things I still hope I'll do. When I finish with the truthy stuff, I think I'll put together a life list (à la Chookooloonks or Mighty Girl), just for giggles.

Thinking is good. Mostly. I think. ;)
