Return of Bougainvillea

So much has happened since the last blog post: A resurrection of sorts, a lost love, a messy fight, a weekend-long crying session, a missed trip, a lovely wedding, a mind-blowing concert, a new direction, a new passion, a new love…

Sometimes you don’t realize how much you’ve learned or not learned or even unlearned in the days that go by. Sometimes it takes an argument or an intimate conversation or just some heart-to-heart with a dear friend. Recently in a reply to a friend’s email, I realized how much the way I live my life has changed. After sending the email, I re-read my reply a number of times to convince myself that it was really me who had written all that.

I remembered where I needed to go every time I need refuge. No one will be able to take it away from me. No one will possibly understand it and to be honest, I think I’d rather have it that way.

If anyone needs me, I’ll be with My Bougainvillea.

I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright. ~Henry David Thoreau
