Sorry, ran out of gas. Got a little recharge.

That is okay, everybody runs out of gas eventually.

Yes, nothing can prevent that, unfortunately.

Sooner or later you have to go to the big math exam in the sky.

It seems far away but I know it will creep up on me.

Oh heck, your life will be one big blur. It will seem to go in about a week or two. But the good thing is you will not remember most of it.

Supposedly 30 is when you start forgetting early childhood memories.

It happened much later for me. Seems that only the real bad beats and some of the good times are still in there.

Eventually those can become blocked out though -- or made 'dead'.

Or you can retain it all.

There are some that I would probably like to forget about, although I would like to retain most of it. Most serve as learning experiences.

You can pile up a lot of baggage that way. The pain has got to heal sooner or later and then you forgot her.

I think all mine has healed but I cannot be certain.

They say nothing gets you over the last one better than the next one.

I don't know about having a 'next one' though. At the moment, I don't feel like pursuing anyone, and there is not really anyone to be pursued, either... although perhaps that is more consequential.

That could change on a daily basis. You just never know what you bump into next.

Yes -- but, I have not really been out of the house much. I feel exhausted when it comes to girls, which is ironic considering I have not made much progress.

That is why you feel that way. But it is okay to move at your own pace. As I said it changes drastically.

I suppose it is like mathematics in that sense.

Mathematics does make some sense, they never do.

That I agree with... I have never been able to figure them out.
