I don’t really go in for the “what if” scenarios. My form of time travel is only forward. I love reflecting on the past and feeling the agony as well as the ecstasy but I would never wish to be someone other than I am, superstitious I guess.
Today’s Blogging Prompt: If you had the chance to be reborn, would you choose to return as your present self, or would opt for a fresh start? Tell us about what motivates your choice.
There are some great movies about time travel. I love the Back to the Future series especially. It illustrates well how trying to change time can really mess things up. I think as we grow older we see the reason for many of our hard times. Now, if I was a starving kid selling gum in Tijuana. I certainly would change my identity. I’ve seen a lot of people in poverty in my time, it’s hellish. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. As for me though, I was born in Mission Viejo, CA and while not ever filthy rich, I have been fortunate beyond measure. Now if I had that time machine, I might be tempted to give myself advice on my music in the 20’s, to not have such a “nightingalish” croon (ugh)! What would that upset? Hindsight is 20/20 but I would not change my history, superstition is my reasoning.
