All the things that might have been
What is the effect of one small action? The possibilities are endless
What happens to the road not taken?
Does it wait for us to return, or does it blink out of existence?
And if we do return, is it truly the same road, since we ourselves have changed?
What of the people we meet along the way?
Are we destined to meet them no matter which road we follow, or do future friends and cohorts come into existence and disappear with every choice we make?
Will we find our soulmates whichever path we choose, or do different choices make us different people with different souls and different destinies?
If you’re expecting me to answer these questions, you might as well stop here.
I have no more idea than you do, and maybe less.
But I do have a story about crossing paths and hidden possibilities.
