  1. I have often thought through the what-if angle. What if someone approached me and said to choose a period in my life to which I would like to return and start again from that point with some now better knowledge than I had then. It is then that I realize maybe if possible I could go back but I could not return the entire world to that point. So then I thought what would be the answer and my opinion is that if someone could return me to that time the world would have to be in the present time and could I really adjust to that looking from the age and time I would be once again? It is most complex as you see when I philosophize.

  2. Boy, do I wish I could change my past! You’re right about “Lost”. I didn’t watch it when it aired; I marathon-watched it on Netflix and was mesmerized! I’m curious about many things in life which is why I write about the topics that I do here on Virily and another site.

    • That is exactly what I like about you, Linda. As for wanting to change the past, I once read an article by a wise man who said, “The primary colors on every artist’s palette, are just that, boring and hum-drum but when he dirties and mixes them a little, the final product, is what masterpieces are made from.” So, don’t wish them away, when we want to criticize or admonish someone, we should do so, only if the paint on our palettes consist of the original, undirtied, hum-drum primary colors. \0/

    • If you desire a grateful and fulfilled life, and eventual eternal rest, you MUST be in a perpetual state of wonderment or curiosity. After all, what is the Biblical rest, other than rest, and satiety from a sincere wonder of life?

      “Mmm, I think, there’s something profound in those words somewhere?” Lol.
