the wonderful world of veena.

back to the world of blogging?

Hello again, world! It's been quite a while since we've seen each other. June brought both a self-imposed and logistically-imposed break from the blogging world, and I think it was much needed all around.

June was quite the hectic month, from arriving in Bangalore, catching up with everyone, showing my brother around, visiting family in Coimbatore, a quick visit to Coorg to recharge the batteries, lots of time spent with the Peanut, Boss' birthday pub crawl, and finally Amai's birthday party to close out the month and ring in my own birthday.

Just after that, the brother and I headed up to Surat to spend a few days with our masi. It was a nice, relaxing week, and on the way back, I took advantage of an 8-hour layover in Bombay to visit with two of the staff of kranti, an awesome organization working with the daughters of street workers. From there I met our dear lost boy, Uday, for a quick lunch before heading back to the airport to commence my waiting. and waiting. and waiting. Seems I can never make it back out of the Bombay airport on time, and my flight that was scheduled to take off at 5.30pm finally took off at approximately 7.10pm.

I reached Bangalore around 8.40, grabbed my bag, found a bus, and settled in for a long ride to Indiranagar. I finally reached around 10.10pm and then caught a rickshaw, reaching Eslyn, Elvis, and Eric's house around 10.30, just in time to grab some dinner at the end of Elvis' roce ceremony. Saturday was Elvis' wedding, so there was a lot of running around to be done to make sure everything was in place for both the mass and the reception.

And in the wake of all of those happenings, the last two days have been spent trying to make sense of my life again. I've been finishing further amendments to my IRB submission, responding to quite a lot of emails, trying to catch up on everyone's blogs, trying to figure out the logistics - and feasibility - of living in Bombay for 3 months if this project works out, booking my tickets for Delhi and Kathmandu, working on a few things for Room to Read, and generally trying to sort out my life. It seems I've been trying to do that quite a lot in the past few months, and every week brings new changes to be included.

For the time being, it seems as though I have returned to the world of blogging. Pictures from the last month and a half will be posted one day soon, as will further updates as I continue to sort out a few things.

It's nice to be back.
