To Be or Not To Be

A little kingdom I possess,
Where thoughts and feelings dwell;
And very hard the task I find
Of governing it well.
-- Louisa May Alcott.

It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.

Completed another year of my life this month. The coming year promises to be full of changes—and not being one for change, I am rather daunted by the prospect. But I intend to do my best.

I had hinted about one such change in my previous post. It is actually nothing in itself, but a lot to me. I shall be leaving for Hong Kong tonight for a 6-month assignment. It would be the first time I would have stepped outside the country (outside Maharashtra and Karnataka, to be precise!)…the first time I would have been away from my family for this long…first time I would have lived alone…first time I would be forced to do some ‘serious cooking’!…first in many many ways… but putting all uncertainties and anxieties aside, am actually looking forward to it. There is the thrill of discovering a new place, but more than that, there is the pleasant anticipation of discovering new parts of myself.

So long then, for now! My next post (when I find the time and the resources) shall be from Hong Kong. Fare thee well, India, till I come!
