"...still I'll meet you tomorrow, and look forward to see you, now I can't live without you"

8.19 On Time
Silver Lining taught me a lesson about honesty and said some of the kind of things I’ve been thinking about lately.

When I first started it was a purely technical exercise. I wanted to do it to see if I could do it. There was no intention to give anything away. No names, no pack drill, no soul searching. Observations bookended with banality and a fine sprinkling of cliche.

Times changed; stuff slipped out. Some of it was pointed, there were plenty of red herrings.

People changed; I began to regret that some of the stuff had slipped out. I tried to push the genie back into the bottle. It wasn't much fun.

I thought about going away but stayed. I started to have fun again.

I began to regret that some of the people knew.

Then I realised - sometimes you’re just bridging a gap between one part of a person’s life and their next thing - it’s no big deal.

And anyway, some of the stuff was surprising and some turned out surprisingly well.

This doesn’t necessarily mean it’s going to start making sense.
