Yes, I do agree.. Am sorry for abandoning you for so long. But well, in my defence I was busy living it up.
Say what, you don’t believe me, is it? haha.. well, what can i say.
I manage to revisit a town I had nearly taken off my list of “fond destinations I have been to” and well, it just might be sneaking back into the list, atleast somewhere at the bottom for now. And whilst there, I had some kind of light bulb moment as well. It dawned on me how much I have changed over the years. Not sure if it was cos of life, or just generally, you know the whole “matures with age, like wine perhaps..lol”
The conversations, the moments, the way I was thinking, the kind of things I wanted to do, the people I connected with- they were all very different from what I would have done few years ago. So I guess somewhere I grew up.. That said, I was glad I still have a bit of the kid left in me. A friend told me I was good fun to talk to- have serious conversations, bounce off ideas, and yet crack up and have quite a few laughs.. Well, I will take that as a compliment and smile away.
Over the course of months, there have been a few friendships that have become stronger, some have faded and others well they are just there… I guess as with most of us, time is a test for many things in life- work, friendships, memories, pain, la la la, the list is endless.
I continue to be happy being on my own, I don’t long for company, there are very few I miss talking to, some conversations tire me out [they are invariably like the hamster on the wheel, go round and round with no end in sight] and some leave me energised wanting to go conquer the world [or what little I can]

While I sit here waiting for a friend, I look around at the many faces, some waiting for company, while others are focussed on their gadgets, and some have a forlorn look on their faces. A few look up, make contact and smile, while one just turned her face away. This reminds me of the book I love- Phantoms in the Brain: Probing the Mysteries of the Human Mind by V. S. Ramachandran .. What can I say, Human beings never cease to amaze me!
Well, ok, enough rambling, might as well go get a start on work … until next time!
