“sometimes I feel like, if I could start everything over, knowing what I know now, I’d do it all right this time. But other times, I think, no I wouldn’t.”

A Princess Carolyn line.  A good one, too. I’d talk less, smile more. Eat more fresh fruit, drink less– no. No, I wouldn’t. I’d do it all the same, more or less. I’d probably have most of the same virtues and vices. Still waste lots of time. On people and things. But maybe…. just maybe… …
