Hey, you guys are great! I knew the corn thing would spark some commentary and it did, all positive in my point of view. Interesting to know that some of the fly men have put a kernell on there hook and given it a toss, reaffirms everything I hold dear, and believe about human nature.
I also found that "Instantes" was not written by Jorge Luis Borges. It was written by Nadine Stair, in English, but is commonly attributed to Borges because he did the original Spanish translation.(I like it best in Spanish, but have a look)

If I Had My Life to Live Over Again
by Nadine Stair

If I had my life to live over again, I'd try to make more
mistakes next time. I would relax. I would limberup. I
would be sillier than I have been this trip. I know of very
few things I would take seriously.

I would be crazier. I would be less hygienic. I would take
more chances. I would take more trips. I would climb
more mountains, swim more rivers, and watch more

I would burn more gasoline. I would eat more ice cream
and fewer beans. I would have more actual problems
and fewer imaginary ones.

You see , I am one of those people who live
prophylactically and sensibly and sanely. Hour after
hour. Day by Day.

Oh, I have had my moments, and if I had it to do over
again, I'd have more of them. In fact, I'd having nothing
else. Just moments, one right after another instead of
living so many years ahead of each day.

I have been one of those people who never go anywhere
without a thermometer, a hot water bottle, a gargle, a
rain coat, and a parachute.

If I had it to do over again, I would go places and do
things and travel lighter than I have. If I had my life to
live over, I would start barefoot earlier in the spring and
stay that way later in the fall.

I would play hookey more often. I would ride more
merry-go-rounds. I'd pick more dasies."
