As for me, I suppose I'm either far too dramatic or far too boring. I can't really decide which. I know the big, obvious forks I've encountered -- Should I go to college in Jersey or Virginia? Should I return to Virginia after college or head to San Diego? Which job should I take? -- are ones any would see as essentially being displayed in Vegas-sized neon.
But there are so many other decisions I make -- that we all make -- which are so minor but seemingly have as great or greater impact as the big ones. Which of the three buses heading to California should I board when I have to transfer in Chicago? [That decision ultimately meant I hooked up with a fellow traveler and followed him around the country for a few years.] Whom should we hire for the position of controller? [That one got me a mate.]
Kind of makes the whole should-we-have-chicken-or-beef-for-dinner discussion more meaningful, eh?
Only in hindsight
do we recognize the truth.
We're always choosing.
