Emergent Behaviour

Life has always been about an adventure. An exploration into something new, uncharted. And this last solar revolution has been something completely new. It started with leaving the Island city. Next came an entry to the Bridge Capital. It moved onto the Valley of Heart's Delight, and it brings me back to a sojourn with the Island City, before a return to the City of Bridges.

Nine months by the Bridges, and the number of visits to the bridges? Not more than a handful. This in a city where there are 446 of them. And these visits occured after the first 4 months of the stay in the city. The first trip happened with quite an eclectic crowd, in fact. Slowly things began to move forward. A gang of friends developed. A club of friends persisted. Friends began to appear. Never what one would expect, however. Always something missing. The end of these nine months saw something new. Something that was lacking all the while, and things looked upwards. A new circle was developing.

Three months in the "Valley of Heart's Delight." A completely different ball game all together. Thrown into a new place, with a new set of people, all collected from a large diverse crowd. The explorations finally began. Externally, and internally. New people were met. New things were done. Inhibitions laid low, as experimentation took to new heights. A new person emerged.

Hey I check your blog twice on Thursday and didnt see any post! And now I see its been posted on Thurs! Kya timing hai!

The only city I could identify is the one with the 446 bridges, which I just visited cpl of weeks back! I really liked it, though didnt go to any bridge in particular... too bad i guess

and I totally relate to the post since I'm doing a lot of exploration and meeting new people etc myself.. gives life something to look forward to I guess, though it can be disconcerting too!
