I saw my young self caught in the bind of wanting to say certain things, give shape to feelings and ideas and experience, while shackled by self-consciousness at the prospect of being misinterpreted, exposed - or seen for the moves I didn't want to be seen to be making. There's a lot I'd say now that I wouldn't say then, which is why I saw that somewhere in those files there was something worth going back to, a story worth telling.
