A meeting across time

In his book The Bridge Across Forever, Richard Bach talks about meeting himself in the future. What a fantastic concept, meeting the person I will be 5, 10, whatever number of years from now.

So how would the conversation between the present me and this future version go?

Probably I would ask him:
What do I make out of these years that lie between you and me?
How did you get through all this time?
Was it harder than it is right now?
Was it adventurous?
Did the years fly past in a hurry?

 

What would he say?
Perhaps – Can’t tell you buddy, you’ve got to find out for yourself.
Or – Harder, adventurous, hurried, these are all tags you give, I just lived as I should.
Or perhaps this – The last five years were just great. Thank you.
