Old Notebook Post

A post from an old notebook dated 8-10-98.

———–

Not swept with emotion as I had expected.
A subtle quiet change
No fanfare
Balloons
People there to shake my hand
Saying “it was about time”
With me
“smile and nod”
Walking calmly to my grave

ALONE

—————

If my dramatic ass remembers correctly, this was written just after I was offered a new position at work.

I’m going to count to ten on 2 fingers today.
My hands shaking too hard and mind too numb to try to count beyond.
