Not the spooky Hallowe’en kind, either, although I am aware I am running out of time before I need to have formulated an opinion on that ghoulish evening.
No, I mean the ghosts of previous versions of ourselves.
I’ve just started a new job, and that has taken me back to old territory – from 2000-06 I worked on Bedford Row, so Holborn/Farringdon are places I once knew well. There are landmarks where significant things happened or routines were based around. It just feels very odd to be starting ‘new’ in a place that is ‘old,’ but one that I see through very different eyes than those of my 28 year old self.
I don’t want to be that person again – I mostly like who I am now – but it does make me THINK. That’s all.
