HBH 291

Away for ten years
Memories all frozen in time
Lying in ambush

All the things that made me sad in this country are still here. Griefs from ten - and fifteen and twenty - years ago suddenly feel again as if they happened only yesterday. That's the trouble with going away for so long, the way it messes with your memory. You can't escape the past, you can only delay a reckoning.
