I am reading a book called “The Time Traveler’s Wife.” It is about a guy that becomes “unstuck” in time. He revisits key moments in his and others lives. His wife gets visited throughout her childhood by her future husband.
I love the idea of time travel. “Slaughterhouse 5” is another time travel book that I love. I wish that it really was possible to revisit yourself in the past. Not that I would want to make any changes. It was a fluke that I met my wife. Any tinkering with the past and she is pretty much out of the picture.
But I would like to go back as an observer. It would be great to see my parents through adult eyes while they were raising me. Seeing myself as a child and observing my own behavior would be endlessly fascinating.
For now, I am stuck in the now. And that ain’t all bad.
