What if?

Older Self (os): “What if?” was an old series that Marvel Comics had back in the late 80’s, when I was still collecting. It was interesting to see the alternate timelines that could have happened.

Younger Self (ys): So…. what if?

os:  I am a firm believer in that things happen when they happen in the order they have to happen. It may not have been apparent at the time, but your past determines your future. Who you are now is because of everything that has happened to you in the past. Good, bad and ugly. It all matters. If you were to go back in time and change anything, then things will turn out very differently.

ys: So what are you trying to say? There is no “What if?” That you took the correct way back then?

os: No. There’s no correct way. Life just happens around you. You make the choice, and keep going. And you keep making choices, every day, every hour, every minute, every second. And you keep going.

ys: You’re starting to scare me.

os: Oh, just humor me.There’s always “What if?”.

ys: So…. what are talking about then?

os: Well, I guess I am trying to do a few things. The main thing is still just learning everything I need to do. I want to spend time getting the procedures down, fixing up the scans, maybe coloring them in. Figure out the best way to post. Even waiting for the new software versions to come out.

ys: So you’re just stalling for time?

os: Yeah, okay, you got me. I don’t have the time like I used to, so things will take a lot longer to accomplish. But, small steps until it’s ready to go.

ys: Okay. Going back to “What if?”.

os: Let me think about it for tomorrow.

ys: Alright.
