Thank you Lore.

I don't know if any of you read the writings (okay, occasionally they're ramblings, ravings, or rantings) of Lore Sjöberg.

He writes Alt-Text for Wired magazine, among other things.

I was especially charmed by this week's Resting in Pieces: An Alternate-Universe Obituary.

It made something clear to me: It isn't just that I'm bothered at the squander of opportunity in my life. It is that I know that it is completely within my grasp to change it--that somewhere out there, if the alternate universe theory holds, there is a version of me who didn't waste that moment, thought or opportunity.

And that bothers me! I want to be the most interesting version of myself available in any universe.
