oh Ophelia

prince Hamlet  said in his famous monologue (by W. Shakespeare)

To be or not to be: that is the question

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles
And, by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep
No more – and by a sleep to say we end
The heartache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to – ‘tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished. To die, to sleep
To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there’s the rub,
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause. There’s the respect
That makes calamity of so long life.
For who would bear the whips and scorns of time,
Th’ oppressor’s wrong, the proud man’s contumely,
The pangs of despised love, the law’s delay,
The insolence of office, and the spurns
That patient merit of th’ unworthy takes,
When he himself might his quietus make
With a bare bodkin? Who would fardels bear,
To grunt and sweat under a weary life,
But that the dread of something after death,
The undiscovered country from whose bourn
No traveler returns, puzzles the will
And makes us rather bear those ills we have
Than fly to others that we know not of?
Thus conscience does make cowards of us all,
And thus the native hue of resolution
Is sicklied o’er with the pale cast of thought,
And enterprises of great pitch and moment
With this regard their currents turn awry,
And lose the name of action.—Soft you now!
The fair Ophelia! Nymph, in thy orisons
Be all my sins remembered

I am having my own Hamlet’s dilema with my own Ophelia and my own sea of probable trouble. Life is funny sometimes, it gives you a never ending non choices or easy picks but then it hits you in the face with a double devil option a to be or not to be a what shall and what shall not, and like a well orchestrated TV game show you don’t back down take the check and go home… no no no you stick it up and play. A not so long while ago I was stuck at a cross roads and I had the feeling that yet another one was coming up and right on queue here it is lucky me :-)…well at least life is never dull and there is always something to make your brain play skull pingpong (that’s when your pea brain is being ping ponged between the 2 walls of your aching skull)

At the end of it all….there are no bad choices just stupid ones
