I’ve never felt unsettled in all my life. At least I think that’s what that was. I have been in India for a majority of my breathing, heart-beating phase. There have not been many opportunities for me to be out of my element. I did well, I thought. I had the comfort of the people I’d grown used to and food that had just the right dash of home.
We all pride ourselves in being masters of things. Some are well-read or well-slept. Others can recognise wines by their odours and people by their warmth. I am addicted to familiarity. Ten seconds later, I like being thrown off the trail in the hope that I’ll mysteriously find my way back on it.
I love living in Washington. It’s only been 4 months. But I want to find that usual place I end up in. I won’t force the tide…I can’t; but I know it will be okay.
