Am Here Now

'Don't let your soul get lonely child
It's only time, it will go by
Don't look for love in faces, places
It's in you, that's where you'll find kindness'
- Be here now, Ray Lamontagne

I leave many things undone. I also don’t quit some things easily. It is in this schizophrenic realization that I manage to get by. A lot happened while I was away and I let a lot happen.

Wrote a lot less, lived through many firsts. And in betweens. Graduated into adulthood, went on a trip covering the whole west coast of India. Said the first, most painful goodbye. Saw a friend survive death. Moved to a new city. Made up my mind about traveling to Europe before 2009. Discovered Sufjan Stevens. Named my unborn child. Bonded with my brother. Like really bonded. Saw ‘my’ sister get married. Happily. Surprised myself with the way I handled it. Calculated my taxes 12345243 times. Discovered and still exploring the genius that is MS Excel. Trying hard to let go. trying harder to not. Taking ‘gay-ass’ness to new levels… Its good to be back baby!
