The Birthday Present of Future Past
In six days I will be 38 years year old. In my last article, I wrote about birthday wishes. I wrote about wanting nothing. I wrote about wanting everything. I wrote about how in the end, the one thing we should want, we will never receive (time).
No matter how hard we blow out those birthday candles or how badly we wish it into existence; we are not getting more time added to life. We are not going back in time, either. And so, we can always (and only) do what we can, with the time we have in the present.
