The Shadow

"Between the idea / And the reality / Between the motion / And the act / Falls the Shadow . . . For Thine is the Kingdom"

I'm still thinking, therefore I'm still amming

It's been a while since I've posted but a fair bit's happened. I'd like to say an awful lot has happened but that might be a slight exaggeration.

Just after my last post I went away for a week and a half for Gerroa SUFM which was a tough but encouraging time. Progress as I like to see it was not prolific and I felt as if I were beset by one of Screwtape's buddies. But I saw some great examples in my brothers and sisters and shared in some great conversations.

Since I got back I started at my new job and had my last shift at my old job, in that order. I'm looking forward to having Saturdays free but I'll miss having time off during the week. To be frank (I've been banned from saying "To be honest"), there's a lot more that I'm not going to miss.

I sent off one of my best mates from uni with the whole MECO crowd and he's already spent his first weekend in Melbourne. Another friend, this one from church, is now considering jumping across the harbour. But then another friend, a wise thinker and prolific blogger, is preparing to move from quite a distant locale to a not-too-distant one.

The world is a changing place.

At the end of these last three weeks though, my mind is all shadows. I have thought a lot but now that I've paused to gather all my thoughts, I realise I have nothing to say that is worth saying.

And to prove to you that the world is in a state of flux, I won't push on regardless.

To be perfectly honest with you, I'd much prefer it if you were Frank, as there are too many Tims in this world as it is. Just imagine what a world of confusion it would be if we went around saying, 'To be completely Tim with you...'

I'm saying this just to be totally and utterly Fred with you, you understand.

You're banned from saying "To be honest"? That sounds like a story... tell us who banned you!

Although timt, there could be some very interesting variations on 'To be completely Tim with you...' Just imagine:

'To be completely Timid with you...'

'To be completely inTimate with you...'

'To be completely Tim-tam with you ...' but who would have a bar of that?

As for the 'To be honest' banning Jonno -- to be completely Timid with you, I won't divulge.

Hey Tdix, nice to see that you're back alive and shaken after SUFM. Any stories?

Hey Matt -- I'll try and dig out some stories when I next see you.
