Time Warp

Time Warp

Written on 11/10/ 11

E-mail confirmation and my airplane ticket both assure me we will leave New Zealand early in the morning of November 12th and touch down on US soil in the evening of November 11th.

If shortly after we arrive we discover we failed to pack something, can I call myself to remind me? Or would that create a time anomaly, which would bring the universe as we know it to an end? If I get a call from me in the states late Friday night, I will let you know. If the universe ends that night — Sorry.

If you had one chance to go back in time and do something differently in your life, would you? What was the situation and what do you think you should have done differently?

There’s the one that got away or the one that didn’t. Words spoken in haste or the words never uttered. Efforts that went wrong or opportunities missed.

For me, I might take the chance to kiss my best friend’s little sister. I could take the time to cool my anger and not adopt the righteous language of my accuser. I should have talked to the college instructor who did not accept me into his poetry class but left a note inviting me to talk to him along with his refusal.

Woulda’ coulda’ shoulda’

What about you?

I think we all have woulda, coulda, shoulda's:)...I think, there are only a couple of things I would have changed. The others that I think about, would always wind up costing me someone in my life that I am really glad is there. So I guess I have one definite should've. Very much.
I hope you find yourself when you reach the U.S.:)...I'm married to an Aussie, so I'm accustomed to the time warps that go with this type of travel. I think the massive jet-lag makes you feel like you've diddled with time, no matter what you do. So phone away. It'll take you a couple of weeks to figure out if you displaced the universe anyway:)

Instead of Back to the Future, you're doing Forward to the Past. Safe journey, Warren. Let us know that you arrived safely, but sleep in, so call the day after you arrive, which is today. Thanks!

Have a safe trip. Jet lag from Europe, something I'm familiar with, seems minor compared with that from New Zealand and Australia.

I have a list of woulda-shouldas. LOL

Love the name and look of your blog.

On behalf of Warren, who is half way between yesterday and today, or make that tomorrow and today, thanks Nike. I've seen you over at the crimescenewriter list. Happy writing, and stop by again!
