The Virtue of Not Knowing     7/4/2020
At 75…
I can feel free to 
travel back and forth 
across the landcape 
of my life without having 
to make excuses
for all the mistakes 
I made along the way, 
while savoring the richness
of all the experiences 
I’ve enjoyed along the way. 
But I wonder…
If given both choice
and foreknowledge,
who among us 
would choose 
to jump on the 
of life if we knew 
all of what was 
in store for us 
along the way.
