I'd Pick More Daises

If I had my life to live over again,I'd try to make more mistakes next time. I would relax. I would limber up. I would be sillier than I have been this trip. I know of very few things I would take seriously. I would take more trips. I would climb more mountains, swim more rivers, and watch more sunsets. I would do more walking and looking. I would eat more ice cream and less beans. I would have more actual troubles and fewer imaginary ones.

You see, I am the one of those people who lives prophylactically and sensibly and sanely hour after hour, day after day. Oh I've had my moments and if I had to do it over again, I'd have more of them. In fact,, I'd try and have nothing else. Just moments, one after another instead of living so many years ahead each day. Have been one of those people who never goes anywhere without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a gargle, a raincoat, aspirin, and a parachute. if I had to it it over again, I would go places, do things and travel lighter than I have.

if I had my life to live over, I would start barefooted earlier in the spring and stay that way later in the year. I would play hooky more, I wouldn't make good schoolmarms except by accident. I would ride on more merry-go-rounds.

I would pick more daises.
