Phew — The “danger” of documentation was brought home to me very forcibly a couple of days ago.. A friend of mine stumbled across an old year book from my campus fellowship (from which I graduated in 2002).
First off the “me” in the picture was several pounds lighter, with bushier hair and the talk — gist of launching my very own ISP wthin 10 years of quititng campus, writing songs and all what not — was a far cry from what I’d actually gone on to do .. Only my name connected the picture of the scrawny 20-something year old guy with the “buff” guy I’d become..
Maybe documentation is a good “danger” — it forces us to look at our lives thru the prism of yesterday’s plans and tots and ask the hard questions – am i still on track or have i derailed..

If you do not wake up, I will come upon you like a thief, and you will not even know the time when I will come
