I Wish I Could Have Says Forrest Fenn
I think all of us at one time or another dream about being someone else or wish to have lived in a different time. You have said you were born 100 years too late. If you could live a wish for one day, what would you ask for? Or an era, religious views aside? ~ Jeanie
Jeanie, you sure ask interesting questions and this one reminds me of the illiterate Greek who was offered one wish. He could have anything he wanted. So Socrates asked for wisdom, and as soon as he said it he knew he should have asked for money. There are so many people I’d like to be for one day.
I wish I could be Adolph Hitler on September 1, 1939, the day Germany invaded Poland, so I could have taken poison 11 years earlier than he did.
Or I’d wish to be JFK on November 22, 1963 so I could reverse my decision to visit Dallas.
There are so many others, and as for an era. I would like to know the biographies of all my ancestors, starting with the very first one. Where did it all start for me, and with whom? I’d hope there is a pirate in there somewhere. Do you think that’s asking for too much?f
