Days of future future

In which my life line shows that I won’t have my palm read.

The one thing we can be sure about the future is that it’s not happened yet. That makes it a terrifying prospect but also extremely exciting, as much as things can go right/wrong they can also go wrong/right. All I can do is what for the future to appear.

To be told what my future is going to be I would need to look to my past, and even if I go back five years to the turn of 2010 my future looked very different to what my present has become. So what could my life be like in the next five years?

The one part I hope is still in place is my family, by that time we should be certainly have two little heirs in place (and who knows maybe a third on the way?). Five years ago it didn’t even look like I would have a wife (or girlfriend) and look at me now, I’m past my third wedding anniversary.

The same with jobs, back in 2010 I started the year working for an opticians (who would soon ‘relieve’ me of my duties) but since I have been at a gas company, bank, insurance company, energy company, home assistance provider and now work for a restaurant business. At this rate I could be working for NASA, a football team, charity for orcas, guest appearance at a Taylor Swift show, name picker for the Kardashians and President of Mars.

Back in 2010 who could have predicted Game of Thrones, Marvel movies or the new Star Wars? The next few years are super exciting for me as a geek and I even know about The BFG, Red Mars, American Gods, A Series of Unfortunate Events and His Dark Materials.

The rise and fall of the England Cricket team, Apple not being cool and Microsoft replacing them, Nokia disappearing, Trump, Uber, Tesla, Brits winning the Tour de France, Lance Armstrong, the rise and rise of Taylor Swift, there are so many surprises in the last 60 months that the next 60 are equally unpredictable.

You’re on a long flight, and a palm reader sitting next to you insists she reads your palm. You hesitate, but agree. What does she tell you?

Ah, so you worked out the riddle. You just needed to use dwarfish and the doors to Geek Ergo Sum opened. Or perhaps you just used Google. Either way you are here, on my little corner of the Internet.

One thought on “Days of future future”

  1. The past is the past and the future is not yet written. All we have is Now. The only thing the lines on people’s palms tell any reader is basically personality traits and sometimes things that have happened in the past (like scars etc…). It’s a roadmap of what was and is. No fortunetelling here.
