After writing about having a car fever yesterday my wife commented me about it that I have been writing quite long if I'm writing about that again. Or maybe I just get this fever way too often.
It is true that I wrote about wanting s new car almost three years ago. But unlike back then, this time I didn't go out and buy a new car the next day!
This kind of events give a bit more perspective on how long I have been writing. When you can think back to something that feels happened way back and then realize you were already writing back then it feels different than just thinking you have been writing a few years now.
Days and years are just numbers. Those events are what make the time pass. If nothing happened in between it would feel just like yesterday. Looking back and recalling all the things that have happened since really puts the distance in time.
