Not Saying Never
Published on March 25, 2012 by Sara Foss

Over at the DG, I write about why I try never to say never.

Here's an excerpt:

"At this stage in life, there are certain things I’m fairly confident I’ll never do, like own a motorcycle.

But you never know.

Maybe someday I’ll decide that I really want a motorcycle, and purchase one. That’s what my friend Bruce did. One day he said, 'I saw this cool motorcycle online, and I bought it.' Now he says things like, 'I think it’s time to get out my bike,' and 'I think I’m going to go for a long bike ride tomorrow.'

Will this happen to me? I doubt it. I don’t really care about motorcycles, although there’s a part of me that thinks it would be fun to ride one around.

My friend Kristina was pretty leery of motorcycles — until she married a motorcycle-loving man and bought one for herself. Then they got divorced, and she sold her motorcycle. Kristina’s life has changed so much since then that it’s difficult to remember that she ever went through a phase where she was married, lived and worked in New Hampshire and rode a motorcycle. Now she lives in Guam and runs marathons. What will she do next? I have no idea. But I wouldn’t rule anything out."
