Dia de los Muertos

With el Dia de los Muertos soon here, a thought experiment:
I am imagining myself at a dinner party in the afterlife- a chance to reflect upon a life lived. Also present are all of the other versions of me who I could have been if I had made different life choices. The me who studied harder . The me who focused on career. The me with ambition. The me who stayed in the military. The me who stayed on the family farm.
And as I look around at these alternate selves, some are impressive while others seem less so. Some make me feel inadequate and with others, I really want to engage.
Fun experiment 🙂 Certainly offers fireside conversation material.
This was inspired by a BBC article about living life – our best life.
