A butterfly with broken wings
Is falling by your side
The ravens all are closing in
There's nowhere you can hide
Have you ever been blamed for the destruction of something beautiful? Your mother's favourite vase, perhaps, or a precious photograph. Maybe even a friendship or relationship? Was it your fault? How did you feel?
The work that I am doing at the moment has the potential to be beautiful. It's only an IT system but if I do everything right, then it will be. Its beauty would be in its apparent simplicity, a mask that seamlessly hides the hellish complexity behind it. If it works correctly then it will be the best single piece of work I have ever done.
If it all falls apart then I hope everyone will realise that I've done my best and won't lay the blame at my feet.
