i've just finished reading a mammoth novel called Shantaram. in it the protagonist talks about beginnings and pin points some beginnings in his life.
i dont think i can pinpoint any beginnings. turning points yes, but not beginnings and i'm not sure why i view the two as different. maybe a beginning requires an ending and i haven't seen the end points to the turns, if you know what i mean.
if i had gone to university my life might still have been one of family and work, thats pretty common to the human experience, but it would have been populated by different people and that is guaranteed. different people might have meant a very different family and a very different job and a totally different life.................
having said all of that i dont regard the decision not to go to uni as a beginning, just a choice.
can you name any beginnings in your life?
