Just a Thought...

For the future, I propose that if they can't make a time machine or have certified psychics who can actually predict what you'll be doing at age 32, they should make a series of crystal balls. These crystal balls will have the uncanny ability to show you where you will be in exactly one year's time. No more than a year will be allowed, one year alone is enough.
If you are willing to upgrade to the next, more expensive crystal ball you will be able to see the steps and decisions you made that led you to where you are one year from now.
And the most expensive crystal balls will show you the alternate reality, had you not have made those choices, where else you would be. Because every action has a consequence, these options would be nearly limitless in scope.
Believe me, if you had told me a year ago everything that would happen to me and all the people I would meet along the way, I wouldn't have believed you. I might have laughed. I might have been angry. More than likely, I might have laughed because if you've ever known me, the things that happen to me are completely ridiculous to the point where you have to joke about it.
Right now, I'm having a crystal ball worthy moment. What will happen in a year to me? If I could, I would like to see it and know. I'm torn though. Much of me would like to just let each day go one at a time, to allow for spontaneity in our highly controlled, deliberate society. But look at my first response. I would choose to see it now. What does that say about me?
Okay enough science fiction deep thought talk for me.

Love to you all,
