Just a thought from 8 November 2003 about .

Most days, I can remember so vividly what it was like to be 13, 18, 26 ... my past is so ever-present that it feels like no time has actually passed at all. But going through these boxes this weekend, finding the treasures I buried over the years, all the photos, tapes, love notes, and other unmentionables ... it makes me realize just how much ground I've covered in 30 years.
And damn does my office look good. Tomorrow, the desk. Now, beer.
