I have been putting this moment off for three years. Just in the past five minutes I have deleted this sentence at least six times. Questioning and doubting. I am also very aware of what’s coming if I start this again.
I need to get into my photo albums, diaries and scrappy script to add details of the past seventeen years to it (2000-2017).
I am going to need to be disciplined and creative and my memory is going to have to be shaken to it’s core.
Many of the events of the past seventeen years in Delhi have been painful. I’m not sure I want to re-visit them or put them down for others to read but I will aim to do this slowly and with wisdom. These years have also been among our happiest. It’s been quite a roller coaster ride.
So, my last and final excuse is that when it comes to writing, I am lazy and need some major motivation. I have recently had some lovely comments about my blog being inspiring and helpful, so I will start again.
Tony and I are leaving Delhi soon to start another community from scratch; for the first time without our kids.
Asha, Zoe and Jordan were 12, 11 and 5 when you last read about them. It was the year 2000 and we had just moved to Delhi. They are grown ups now. They are all married and we have two grandchildren. It has been our greatest happiness to have them all within walking distance of our house in Delhi. I’m not sure I’m ready for this.
We are moving to Nagaland (Far North East India). The internet there can be quite unreliable and I’m not sure how often I will be able to post my posts. Probably not every day. It may be erratic- so to you ladies who sat down with your cup of coffee and my blog every morning- you may be disappointed 🙂
I am learning (and I’m a slow learner) that if anything needs to be done, I need to do it, otherwise it won’t get done. Profound, I know.
Thank you for following my story. I hope I can keep it addictive and interesting and inspiring. I love knowing who is reading and what you are thinking, so please let this be a two way thing ok? I need all the encouragement and inspiration I can get 🙂
