Today, the world’s attention is focused on the U.S. Capitol building. It is, of course, because of the inauguration of a new president and vice president.  Emotions are all over the place.  The future looms daunting, unknowable.quote-it-s-tough-to-make-predictions-especially-about-the-future-yogi-berra-324537

Wouldn’t it be a lark to know what comes next? Sure, it would take the surprise out of it all, but think of the quagmires we might avoid. Risky ventures, beastly hairdos, a series of faux pas. Not to mention tacky garden gnomes.

In times like these, I turn to my favorite philosopher.


This was a fork-in-the-road election. It reminds me of the Russian folk tale, the one where a knight comes to a fork in the road and sees a sign that reads: “If you ride to the left, you will lose your horse, if you ride to the right, you will lose your head”.

Ah, the formidable uncertain future. I ask, what would Yogi do?

 Take a two-hour nap from one to four.


Is there a decision you would change if you had known the outcome beforehand?

Or are you the kind of person who clearly sees what lies ahead?

  1. Good question. Yes and No. Yes if I had known perhaps my decision will be different but No it will only bring hardships anyway so perhaps that is the reason we don’t really know what will happen because we will not learn from our decisions good or bad. 🙂
