In the midst of all of this “processing” I contemplated what it might be that I wanted most as a child and never got. I just let my mind go wherever it wanted to go, and soon found myself envisioning something I found interesting: My present old man self met my young self at the door of the first grade classroom, and said, “C’mon, little guy, enough of this. Let’s you and I move to Colorado and never come back here again”. I’m amazed at the power of that visualization. I’ve been at peace and happy, increasingly happy, ever since. At the rate I’m going irrational exuberance will be upon me any day now.
