Virgo (Aug 23 - Sep 22)
I'm in Bombay! Its Bombay! Its not so much nostalgia how much it is the joy of familiarity. I know the streets, the people, and it feels like I never left it. I think my father really missed me, its all over his face. I hate to be going back because of how he feels and I really don't have any emotional attachment to Bangalore, it has changed significant people in my life. I've trusted a lot of people from that city and regretted that, and I know this is not the last time. Anyway... I'm HOME! My computer is here. My mother used alphabets from the calender and fixed the keyboard so its as funky as a ransom letter. Its my style also, I loved it instantly. I don't feel settled, half of me is in Bangalore, with K and BBB and whitey the car chasing dog. I'm a collector, I've collected these people and built them little shrines in my memory. I don't know where they keep me. BBB, I'm sure I'm out of his blinkered view there just about enough place for one person and camera. Whitey for sure remembers me. May be BBB's mommy does, because she doesn't have to force me to eat. May be the rickshawala who corned me does remember me and laugh about it. But I give everyone a pocket, and like this fact in a bittersweet sense. These pockets are accessible and you can be lost in one or more of them. I really don't know what I'm doing where I'm heading, but I'm walking.
