Just Another Regret

He read about a doomsday
scenario related to global
warming apparently which sent
many readers of the article
into depression and therapy
and some suicides, undoubtedly.
He tried to imagine life without
electricity especially in the
winter. He would have to trek
up and down the dune for water
from the Big Lake and then
find a way to start a fire to
boil the water. His wife asked
how he would start a fire in the
winter with snow all over the
ground. It stopped him in his
Yaktrax tracks. He didn’t know.
He attained the rank of Webelos
but never joined the Boy Scouts.
Just another one of life’s regrets
and missed opportunities.
