The Power of a Coin Toss

When faced with two choices,

A hand holding a quarter between thumb and forefinger

simply toss a coin.

A left hand with a coin on the thumb ready to be tossed

It works not because it settles the question for you,

The hand's thumb is up,  the coin a blur in the space above it

 but because in that brief moment when the coin is in the air…

Thumb is down on the hand again and the blurred coin image is dropping to the ground

…you suddenly know what you are hoping for.

The coin has landed. It's heads!

Or, in my case, in that brief moment after  it lands and you see it’s heads, you know what you really wanted was tails!
