Poking around in my hard disk I came across an aborted piece on aborted pieces which reminded me that what goes around comes around. (Despite its aspiration to the crisp, Strength Weekly does not systematically eschew the homily.) In this case I was unsettled to find that something I wrote eleven years ago spells out a number of concerns that still concern me. Given that the piece is an account of the dangers inherent in setting unrealistic goals, I suppose the lesson to be learned is that if you don’t learn your lesson you will eventually find yourself writing a short introductory item like this.
The disinterred and unfinished account can be read here, in one of the archival wings of this digital estate.
