It seems like when I started working through building Coy’s track I had this vision of what I wanted to do and the order in which I was doing it. As I start work on Coy’s successor, I just caught myself trying to remember what I’d done and how.
Friends have remarked how valuable their blogs were as records to remind their future selves. At the time, when I was really pushing hard in the Coy project, I was posting regularly and feared maybe too much. Now, I’m glad I did. I’m rereading those posts.
- What order did I do to get the grass in?
- What colour ballast did I start from?
Current Day Chris can’t remember a damn thing that Past Chris was figuring out. I have things that I’m doing in the current project that resolve failures in Coy’s development but also I’m trying to recreate those things that worked very well.
I loved (loved!) how that track looked. I don’t regret the decision to stop working on Coy but, equally, I regret the loss of the things that did work. That’s why we’re back.
“Thanks for the memories” because I can’t seem to remember a damn thing.
