I am back, from a long hiatus – been working and travelling; and in between all of that, lost the zest for writing the blog. Every time I thought of writing, I told myself, I must come back better prepared, with good material and stories, and snippets and insights, and photographs and, and, and…….. And the return never happened. Friends dropped into the blog, left their comments and invitation for me to return and I told myself – I shall, soon. And that was four and a half months ago, and I never did, I was never prepared.
Yet, I have so much to share, many travel tales, lots of snippets and stories of my life, many books and movies that I encountered recently and all the happening in the world ….
But more than anything else, the big realisation is that one does not have to come to friends well prepared and ready… one does not have to offer something worthwhile…. one does not have to “present” something to others. One can just come in as it is with whatever one has, for friends do just that, make you feel wanted, welcome and received, for just the way you are!
thank you my friends, Zephyr, Pooja, Corinne … and many others who have written to me and invited me to come back into this space. Thank you for being my friend!
