A Basque in Boise

What ifs, Part II

Back in August, I wrote about “what ifs” being a waste of time. Two or three days after making things right, my best German friend surprised me with a two-week long visit to Boise.

Oscar Wilde once said that the only way to get rid of a temptation is to yield to it. Sadly, I can attest to the veracity of the statement. For a while there and against my better judgement, I allowed myself to once again wonder, what if? It didn’t take too long to figure out I made a mistake by giving in, so last week I stopped. It’s not what I want, but it’s too hard otherwise.

Dunya calls on Saturday, she’s got important news to share, she says. As in she’s coming to Boise again, but this time for good. After four years in Germany, my friend is moving back!

Maybe the universe is trying to tell me something.

    I take comfort in knowing that in the many-worlds interpretation of quantum physics, that there is one universe in which an alternate me lives who has made all the right choices.

    It would be nice to be able to connect with that Steven and find out what they were because oft times we only know if we made a bad choice in retrospect.

    Christmas is coming up. It’s the day we celebrate the birth of the only perfect person. The rest of us …….. well we muddle along.
