When I was trying to choose a name for this blog, many of Yogi’s aphorisms seemed applicable.
The fork in the road quote seemed most applicable because I wasn’t quite sure where life after my work career would flow. I just knew that, when faced with a choice, I’d have to make one, so this quote fit.
I’ve always appreciated another of Yogi’s famous quotes, “It ain’t over ’til it’s over.” All champions fail at times, but no champion ever quits. Neither did Yogi. Sadly, this time for us, and for his 90-year-old body, it is truly over.
The literal translation of adios, the Spanish word for goodbye is ‘to God’. May the fork in the road take him there.
