1. why the hell can they not get their calendar right? I mean, giant prehistoric birds are not using paper to tell them it is breeding season, they must be using some weather-clue? How then did they get it almost exactly wrong?
2. maybe it is the time of year but I am thinking of entirely different lives I would have lived if I had returned that phone call, not quit that job, quit that one sooner, left well enough alone. I can honestly identify two other, different ways my life certainly would have gone. I do not think I am special in this, I think everyone can reflect on their lives & find at least one instance of right-place-right-time/wrong-place-wrong-time that made a difference that would not have been made a step or two earlier, later or at an entirely different juncture.
I am not complaining; I like my life. I just realize it would not have taken much at particular points for it to be a very different life. & I probably would have liked that one too. I am just wired that way.
