Goodbye My Friend

Tonight I bawled my eyes out as, what I'd tried to deny and ignore became a real probability. My hero, Trevor Linden, has played his last game. I'll post more about him tomorrow, when I have the will to type.

Excuse me while I go find a bridge to jump off.

I don't know much about hockey, but even I know that Trevor Linden is a classy guy.

I'm not into sports (well not in any even semi major way...) but I know what you're saying

one week when I "got clean" on a new medication buprenorphine that jolts the brain out of slumber the character Dennis Watts came back to EastEnders... I posted highlights of a classic episode up tonight

...now I know this probably means nothing to you, but bear in mind I last saw this guy on screen when I was about 15... now I'm 30, 32 or something and he's back, literally back from the dead

of course a massive link is formed between my old self and new self, clean self and using self...

and at the time it felt quite profound... also the fact that stuff viewed on this soap (in its heyday) used to be shared with half the nation, so it was common currency, shared experience

I don't think I've ever cried over EastEnders... but you know, too, the feeling when a long running series comes to an end, the feeling of a fulfilled chapter, of the wheel of life turning a full revolution... an era at an end

so though I don't know how you feel, in an odd, sneaking way ~ maybe I do
