Shapeshift columist James (Cora) Birk goes full circle

Shapeshift #10: Conclusion

“No satisfaction based upon self-deception is solid, and however unpleasant the truth may be, it is better to face it once for all, to get used to it, and to proceed to build your life in accordance with it.”
- Bertrand Russell

This has been the most difficult Shapeshift column to write. It’s seen five revisions, four outlines, and two complete deletions and restarts. I’ve been having trouble with the sheer volume of material and the amount of detail appropriate for the subject, and I’ve decided that in the interest of simply getting it done and achieving some sense of closure, detail must be sacrificed.
Here’s what I wrote in my journal in the evening of April 25th, 2004.
