We have a weekly staff meeting with my boss and part of my team. We have projects were working on an various things for discussion. At the end there’s a round-table–we go around and everyone has a chance to bring up topics. Finally, at the end, he asks if there’s any do-overs. In other words, something forgotten, passed by, or needing more discussion.

Life is not like that. We live the road we’ve traveled, and it’s pointless to wonder “what if” I had the chance to do it over. What if I had taken this turn instead of that? What if….

I watched a 1973 movie called “That Certain Summer” last night. I never saw it before. But I wonder, what would I have done, how would it have affected my life, if I had seen this in 1973. At the time, I was a ‘wet behind the ears’ college student, not really understanding who I was or where I was going in life. When I look back, I can’t help but wonder, “what if I’d seen this film….” But, live has no do-overs. What about the film? Look it up!
