I have been trying to post for the last few days but I have been having trouble with my internet connection. I was hoping to load up some photos from my recent misadventure in Singapore but it has been a frustrating experience with the internet connection coming and going. So it’s going to have to be a post sans photos or videos. Hmmm. what to write about? That poses a challenge!
Well, I was inspired by geewits who posted on choosing a Groundhog Day. The idea comes from a Bill Murray film by that name where he re-lives Groundhog Day again and again until he gets things right. Geewits posed the question as to which day would we choose to re-live if we had a choice.
At the same time in a convergence of thought, I was reflecting on some of the comments to my last post and in my reply to geewits, I mentioned that I was a big fan of Snoopy the Musical. As it happens, one of the songs in the musical entitled “I Know Now” has an ensemble of the Peanuts gang singing this line, “Just think of it gee, how great it would be, if I could go back somehow, and have my like to live over knowing what I know.”
Geewits had a very wise choice for her Groundhog Day but for me, I would chose a particular day that I have regretted all my life so that I might, like Bill Murray, get it right in the end. And I would have told my 20 year old self that friendship and doing the right thing is more important than what other people think.
So if you could go back somehow and meet your 16 year old self or your 21 year old self or your 30 something self or whatever age, what would you tell your other self …… knowing what you know now?
