It is easy to feel tethered, the tug of strings pulling in a direction you sense you have but no choice to go. Living can feel like a calculated strategy, played out monotonously and out of your control: Rise, Relive, Rest, Repeat.
But what if one day you choose not to repeat: the first stumble of a domino pushing into motion an unexpected series of events that, in turn, change the course of everything? What action determines what? I often wonder about the minute I left too early, the words trapped in my head, the sight that had been to my left and not my right. In this universe and others they cannot mean much on their own. But what is the difference of their sum? What other life existed in the collection of moments where I had resisted the marionette? I wonder, constantly.
