#Trust30 Prompt: What would you say to the person you were five years ago? What will you say to the person you’ll be in five years?
To the Me of 2006 I would say, “Hey, you are close to the finish line: You are going to finish that dissertation within a year even though you may be the oldest guy at commencement! You can make it!” and to the Me of 2016 …if man is still alive, if woman can survive…I would say, “Don’t you dare forget how that turned out five years ago. Your Ebeneezer will perpetuate the memory of that nailbiting season. And send me a singin’ telegram from the future, Doc: ‘See there, nothing to worry about…nothin’ ta make ye feel afraid, nothin’ ta make ye doot, remember… and keep singing!'”
