Finally leaving Sotha Sil’s side I reflected on all the things I wish I had said and all the things I wished I hadn’t. Reflection is sometimes unkind. Why didn’t I leave him right away instead of gawking at him? It really didn’t matter, I get the sense that he wouldn’t really remember me anyways. He seemed like someone who got lost in their thoughts easily and saw everything around him as trivial. As if the only purpose to the things around him we’re for contemplating on and studying deeper.
