I am flying home tonight after a long stretch of 850 days.. came to Germany for my master degree and going home after completing it.. 🙂
It has been an incredible journey and taught many many lessons.. and as this phase of life comes to a conclusion,I am reminded of an incident from the movie Life of Pi.. so the story is a about a little boy stuck with a tiger on a small boat in the middle of the sea.. how he manages to survive with the big cat and other conditions until they find the shore. When they finally do reach the shore, the tiger takes his own path and that incident breaks the boy’s heart.. since the tiger was part of his struggle,he thought he would stay with him afterwards too.. but instead he just walked away and the boy who was so strong during the entire journey… wept like a child grieving the loss of his cat friend..
What he didn’t realize was that the cat was with him as a matter of chance.. and the purpose he served was to make the boy stronger..and when he found a way of his own,he pursued that..
A lot of people and places touch our journey and shape us in different ways.. but not everything and everyone carries along with us .. they serve their purpose and then move on in space and time.. we must learn to accept that,shouldn’t we! 🙂
A note of gratitude to everything and everyone who shaped me.. and to all things yet to come!!
And I just realize how strange spaces most airports are.. too much of artificial light all the time to know whether it’s day or night,or how the weather is outside.. too formally dressed staff,long faced immigration officials :p .. crazy expensive goods…isn’t it! I love to see a plane take off and the technology marvel it is, but the airports could be made better.. 🙂
A few hours more to reach the best place on the planet… home..!
happy holidays folks! Until next year!
