The more things change

by Jinryu

If you forgot what life was like 10 or 20 years ago, you wouldn’t be alone. I have a vague recollection of what things were like back then. It’s hard for me to invoke it, because my mind is constantly refiltering my perception of things as it develops– and that includes my perception of the past.

So what was I like when I was 13? What was I like when I was 23?

Unfortunately, my blog doesn’t go back to when I was 13, but around 23, looking back, I have a pretty good idea.


It was my birthday a couple of days ago and retrospect is an interesting way of seeing how much things have changed in terms of “material facts”, yet how much they stay similar or on the same path in terms of an evolution of themes.
