Who is one person from your past that you would like to speak to now?

my dad, I guess. But I tried that. Maybe my paternal grandma. My papa for sure (I miss him a lot more then I thought I would). But I think the person I'd most like to talk to, is myself...right arround 12 or 13. I'd tell myself that it'll all be allright.

Oh, I think that's a really good question! Does the person have to be alive? Because if the person can be dead, then I'd pick my brother, Steve. He died when he was 14 in a car accident. I was only 9 when it happened. I don't know what I would want to say to him but I would do anything to be able to   talk to him again.

One person I would like to speak to was my first love. His name was Shane. I loved him more than anybody I can remember (before my husband of course). (And then sometimes I wonder...) I would love to have a whole week with him alone, without his wife, and without my husband, without anybody actually, just to see how he's grown, and what his interests are now, and who he is now. I miss him sometimes. And I wonder what he is doing. He was my life at that time. Without him, I was empty.

I wouldn't mind getting to know Einstein.

Stephanie, 25

I don't want to talk to anyone from my past, thats the reason why they're not in the present now!

I would like to speak to my grandmother as I have alot of unansweed questions I feel she could answere regarding my birth and my brothers birth and adoption. I knew her till I wss 9 and then she passed away of cancer.

I'd like to talk to the first person I dated, who was rather a jerk at the time. I'd like that person to be able to see where I am now. I'd also like to be able to talk to my biological father, whom my mother divorced when I was 18 months old, so I don't remember him at all.  sent him a note in mid-December 1999 politely asking for a medical history but never got a response.

Oh, if only I could, I'd give anything to speak to my grandfather. I'd ask him to tell me what his life was like and I'd record everything he said. When I was younger, I idolized my grandfather but as I became a self-centered teenager and an even more self-centered young adult, I ignored Grandpa. What a little fool I was! By the time I woke up to the fact that he meant a lot to me, it was too late. He was dying.

A boy whom I befriended at a church youth group when I was about twelve. We were fairly friendly for a year, but then he either moved or just stopped attending that particular church, and I've always wondered how things turned out for him.

That would probably be my grandfather that passed away this summer, since he always made me feel good, regardless of how bad my life was. In terms of animals, i would love to speak to my old dog of 14 years, the legendary Big Guy.

Bruno, 31
, CO   USA

I'd like to speak with Rosemary Roberts, an old freind from a couple years back. We've sort of lost touch.

A-Dog, 18

I have lost track of a good friend from college. Her name is Jennifer Stone. I would love to get in touch with her and see how she is doing. We haven't spoken in about 10 years.

Kevin, 33
Sugar Hill

Over the years I've learned that the past is gone. Of course, I can speak to anyone in any dimension of time. The trick is hearing the answers.

Jill, 60

Most of the people from my past past (ie more than a year ago) im glad are out of it, or at the very least would really not be comfortable encountering  ever again...

Talia, 23

My parents.

Laura, 35
, MA   USA

One person? There are a lot. Brian Barker. Mark Patton. Grandpa Jim (though I'm sure it's better to let him rest). This Jeremy kid I met when I was about 10. Dorie Trout. I could go on. . .

Karen, 21

Can't think of anyone.

Alias Irrelevante

I'd like to tell Lita that I'm sorry I wasn't a more steadfast friend.

Felicia, 34

My first love, Mike Cunningham. I just want to make sure he is doing OK

Melodi, 19

My birth parents since I've never met them. I don't even know if I want to speak to them, but I would like to see them.

Amy, 24
New Orleans

My grandmother. She died when I was 13 and I barely remember her, aside from knowing that she was a wonderful person. I want to talk to her and  tell her what's up with her lil girl now and for her to be able to give my son a hug.

Maggie, 20
, IL   USA

I'n some ways (although in many ways i don't) i'd like to talk to my dad. I wish i could talk to my grandfather again one last time, to tell him how much i loved him.

Sarah S., 17

I don't really want to speak to anyone from my past. They're all in my past because I want them there.

Shanna, 15

i would to talk to pop my great-grandfather


I would like to talk to an old friend, Jan. Except he is dead and I guess I wouldn't be talking to him anytime soon.

Janet, 42
E. Brunswick

That's best friend from high school. We parted on poor terms, but as I matured I saw that my choices were not so good and that our friendship really didn't need to end. Hind sight is always 20/20 right?

Tracy, 24

Mike Thompson, my ex-boyfriend.
