The End of Beginning Again?

Posted on Wednesday, November 22nd, 2023

Dave!They say it's never too late to start over.

I suppose it depends on how old you are. And what you mean by "starting over. Many things in my life... from the area where I live to the career I have to the people I hang out with... have been the same for decades. But in other ways I've started over a multitude of times. Intentionally. It keeps things interesting for me when the basics of my life never change.

As the cold and darkness of Winter starts settling in, I started trying to think of something else I could change to shake things up. Break up the monotomy of the season.

And came up empty.

I don't know if it's because I've suddenly gotten too set in my ways or don't want to put the effort in or what, but there's no change I could think of that I actually want to make. Which makes me think I need to do something radical like dye my hair pink or pierce my nose or move to Scotland.

Or maybe all three.

  1. I’m not in a place where starting over is practical, but I’ve always had a very active daydream imagination. One day last week as I was getting ready to fall asleep I had a moment of existential dread because I closed my eyes and there was nothing. No saving the world, no inventing a cure for some disease, no crashing in the woods and surviving my way back to civilization, no being the oldest ever person to hit a game winning homerun, etc., and I thought, man, this ain’t good.
