MENTAL NOTE

"Not reading a newspaper and you are uninformed. Reading a newspaper and you are misinformed."
"Though we cannot make our sun stand still, yet we will make him run."
Will you ever reach Bora?

Thank You, Bollywood Princess

It is with sadness that I had to say goodbye to my Bollywood Princess, now ex-wife, on September 20, 2020. 

As I type this, I realize that eight years ago to the day we were married by the most boring officiant imaginable, yet believing our bond would stand the test of time. 

It didn't.

I won't bore you with the details. All I can tell you now is that I'm about to start a new chapter in my life. The future's not set. There's no fate but what we make for ourselves. Now, who said that? And might I add, somewhat less eloquently, "though it might hurt like a mother." 

Will I be blogging again? I don't know. I feel kind of numb. I've been feeling this way a long, long time. But, who knows... clean slates may invigorate those who dare to start anew. 

What I do know is that it has not been easy. Not on me, and certainly not on Angie ever since I dropped the bomb in December. I hope she's going to come out of this mental ordeal stronger than before (I know she's well on her way). I certainly wish her all the best in the world. 

Thank you for being there when I could barely walk or lift a spoon to feed myself. Thank you for your righteousness and your refusal to give up. Thank you for your final words: Kabhi Alvida Naa Kehna. I'm sorry for not wanting to grow old with you. I truly am.
