Great post, TNT.

Much of the Polynesian tiki scene was created with the need to build a fantasy escape from the real world, and many of the posts on Tiki Central are written with that sense of escape from reality. Thanks for sharing a bit of your real world, in such a well constructed, thoughtful message.

All of us have our own private stories of past hardships, or of paths that for some reason we chose not to or were unable to pursue. Sometimes we are able to choose the direction of our future, and at other times our fate is dependent on the whims of the wind.

All in all, I think it is best not to dwell on what could have been, but instead to treasure what is there for you now. (This even works for us single folks like myself, who don't even have any pets.)

Vern

Mahalo TNTiki for sharing, and it is good to know that Bosko (a very cute Wisconsin native I might add) is very lucky to have you two caring for him as his parents.
