Is Shame Necessary?

“Balancing group and self-interest has never been easy, yet human societies display a high level of cooperation.”

Well Of Sorrows

My heart was dark and heavy yesterday. It wasn’t a good day. At least I had stopped procrastination and got the whole unpleasant thing over with. Over with, that’s saying a lot.

My heart was dark and filled with regrets, there was nothing I could do to change the past. I accept what I have done and move on with my life.

At least I know that they are safe and well.

I spent all weekend anticipating a conversation that’s been on my mind since 2006. I almost didn’t do it, but in the end I just did.

I couldn’t sleep. I went to bed at 5Am. I fell asleep watching 88 minutes. I woke up at 6:30AM and got ready for work. Today was a good day. Things went well, I took over 200 264 photos, the skies were clear and spring was in the air. I came up with a new very short story.

I got home at 7:40PM and ate some food. Here I am, writing my thoughts for the day. The rest of my usual spiel will have to wait until I sleep some more.
