Woke up this morning with
a terrific urge to lie in bed all day
and read. Fought against it for a minute.
Then looked out the window at the rain.
And gave over. Put myself entirely
in the keep of this rainy morning.
Would I live my live over again?
Make the same unforgivable mistakes?
Yes, given half a chance. Yes.
Raymond Carver, All of Us: The Collected Poems

He must not have made very awful mistakes. :) I'd surely never want to make my same mistakes again. How about you?

I think I would go through all of it again. It has made me a better person! I love your profile picture. I have a couple of postcards that Carl V. gave me from the same artist.
