“Sometimes I can hear my bones straining under the weight of all the lives I’m not living.”
— Jonathan Safran Foer

 

I enjoy the life I’m living. As it is I feel truly fortunate and blessed. At times tho I hear echoes of all the other mes out there on the paths I chose not to walk. Lives of adventure and unpredictability where I am less settled. Lives on the road where my Kerouacian adventures on the road lasted beyond my thirties where I did not have a partner or kids. Lives that might be on the surface freer but also with less depth and meaning than what I feel I have now. These lives and selves call out to me especially at times when I feel weighed down and lacking. They are friends and give me signposts and hints about aspects of my life I may need to work on. At times I can meet them at the crossroads of dreams and they meet me halfway. Still I prefer not to trade with them even at the roughest times yet I value their advice. They give me the knowledge and confidence that other paths are always available. The choice is always ours
Blessings, G
