I wonder . . .

Do you ever imagine your life any different than it currently is? What if you had made a different decision? What if you had had the courage to speak your mind?

I’ve recently been spending my daily commute (1.5 hours round-trip) reflecting on things I’ve done (or haven’t done) and decisions I’ve made. Wondering how my life would be changed if I had done things differently, or if taking a different path would have just brought me to my current place.

I’m in an introspective mood of late – I think the slow slide into fall brought it on. Cold weather and I are not good friends, and it makes both my mind and body curl up into a little ball and anxiously await the arrival of spring. The changing season also serves as a reminder (as if I needed one!) that my birthday is just around the corner. I used to love my birthday – now I’d just as soon forget it. I’m not that old yet – I wonder what happened to change those feelings.

Edited to add: There’s new photos up on my Flickr page!
