One of Many
There were many paths to walked in life's journey. And still, there forks in the road in which to choose. Shall I go left or would be be better to head right? Straight ahead looks pretty good. Which one shall it be?
That's the neat thing about life. Choices. So many choices. Makes life interesting, sometimes exciting, never boring.
One fork in the road led me to local television. It was a promising career. Tons of experience on camera (host of several programs), producer of three or four programs, eventually managing the station . . . all make for great stuff on a resume. At the time I was in the final stages of earning an undergraduate career.
After an extended leave of absence from college classes it was time to choose yet another fork in the road in which to travel. One fork had a sign that read "The Path of a Life in Television." There were opportunities to move up in to broadcasting in San Francisco. The second was labeled "A College Degree Opens Many Doors." It was a tough choice but one that yielded no regrets years later.
I often wonder how I would have ended up had I taken that other path. Maybe it would have been something like, HERRRRES BOBBY!
One never knows.
