Good Tidings: Past Future

Present-day you meets 10-years-ago you for coffee. Share with your younger self the most challenging thing, the most rewarding thing, and the most fun thing they have to look forward to.

I met my younger self of ten years ago.

I offered to buy the young man coffee.

He looked me up and down,

and said: “I don’t recognise you, sir.

And I don’t like conversing with strangers.”

And then I realized that he was familiar,

But not me.

For the future is not a mirror,

And the past is but a simile.
