There was something else I was going to, perhaps, type about this evening, but I forgot what that was when I was confronted with a random flash of possibility. I can’t even remember what that flash was, honestly, other than something on E’s screen that I could see from halfway across the room. But it reminded me of the infinite trajectories my life could take, and the infinite trajectories I’ve already shut down with my choices.
We only get to be one human, and we can’t do everything. But we could do anything. Some things aren’t possible for me anymore. But they’re still possible.
I feel like you can tap into that, to soothe yourself while you confront all the things you have missed out on, and inevitably will miss out on, in your short, limited life. Even if you can’t experience them, they can be experienced. And that’s quite nice.
