Progress Report September 10 | 123Read&Write

Well, it’s been about a month since I left New York, and I’ve had some time to think. The experiences I’ve had with Algernon, Miss Kinnian, Dr. Strauss and Dr. Nemur, have weighed heavily on my mind lately. Should I have left so suddenly? I’m not sure, but I will not say I’m sorry.  Feeling my intelligence slipping away, I realized that beautiful moments don’t last forever. The moments of clarity, of understanding people’s true intentions, and realizing the meaning of true love, I will never forget, and I will never regret my decision to undergo the experiment. Some may ask “how is this possible?” Well, I truly believe that it’s better to experience what life has to offer, even if just for a short time. I remember going out to dinner with Miss Kinnian. Gosh, this was an amazing day. It was there and then that I realized I truly loved her. If it weren’t for the operation, I would have never gained this beautiful memory. It was like I was able to steal a sunset and keep it all to myself. In the end, I harbor no bad feelings to my coworkers or anyone else for that matter. In some way, from Algernon to Frank, they all played a part in the person I am today. Life is a never ending story. I have no idea when it will end, but I know I haven’t been feeling well lately. I feel that I’m closer to the edge of something; I just don’t know what it is. Whatever I’m approaching, I hope Miss Kinnian knows that one day we’ll meet again.
