“Thinking about what-ifs isn’t just about the exercise for whimsy. It helps us learn from our experiences – both to prepare for the future and to make sense of the past.” – Felipe De Brigard, Scientific American Mind
What-if our life was different, I mean right at this moment, we make it different? We decide to drop relationships that don’t work, amend our self-defeating thoughts, or stride out on a path that takes us a different way. We shake loose of any shackles that hold us, and make time for the things we love. Where time and meaning are the offerings we make to ourselves. We look, as we always must, for new ways to Say Yes.
“May you have the eyes to see
That no visitor arrives without a gift.” – John O’Donahue
I stare at a selfie sent from Sue, a college friend. In the picture, she’s sticking her tongue out. Suddenly, the past several decades fade into the woodwork, and we’re both twenty again. Her blue eyes sparkle with mischief and pink mouth turns up in a tight U. I swear she’s about to tell our secrets. A photograph – even a selfie – is so much like writing: both capture those uncelebrated moments in time. They make room for things that might slip away and go unnoticed. Remembering Sue, seeing her photo, and then, being with her offered so much. By staying in the moment, words found themselves on my paper, and we celebrated the wonder of relationship. Preserving it through writing.
