Where'd I Leave the Midnight Oil?

Well, yes, it's super-late, but I've been getting a lot done. Rereading SJ from 10 years ago is a surreal out-of-body experience of a way to spend the evening. So much of myself was poured into it, even tho all the names, events, and facts got tossed into a blender and came out looking completely scrambled on the other side. I really did put Tiff, Leonard, Conrad, Leona et al. through some gut-punches, didn't I? No wonder they wanted to call it quits! Now that I've gotten through all that stuff and come out relatively happy and sane on the other side, looking at it from a distance is like becoming reacquainted with an old, close friend from whom you've suffered a long estrangement.

...which probably only makes sense if you're sleep-deprived, and maybe not even then. But it's still true!

In any case, good night, all, and have an awesome tomorrow. :)

Suburban Jungle was wonderful.

And you have plenty of great stories, with other characters, to tell.

It actually makes a great deal of sense.

Catharsis! Catharsis!


Gott segnen Sie !

In reality I think it's great you've re-read all your work. It's always nice (IMO anyway) to revisit prior work after long periods of time. Things look fresh and there's always a "WTF was I thinking?" moment. But, it can be inspirational as well.

I've done that with my oils, and I end up half the time adding stuff to the canvas to make it "Pop!"

You'll figure out what to do, I'm sure.

Don't leave the Midnight Oil going too long, or you will end up with Beds Are Burning, leaving you with nothing but Diesel and Dust. But the Blue Sky Mining company may come to your rescue.
