“Carrying the Ghosts of Lives Unlived.”

Do you feel grateful for the life you already have or you are trying to imagine other destinies?

"There are hinge points in time when life could be one thing, or another."

In this week's TIES column the author Kate Hope Day writes:

"When I think of this, the memory of that hot, bright day in Rome goes cold. I shiver a little. The idea of a third child fades in my mind, and I feel grateful for what I already have. So grateful that this big, messy, joyous life isn’t a ghost life but mine."
