2012 started off for me with the hopes that some lady would find me eligible and propose to me. That has not happened yet.
I was however presented with an alternative – a very charming young lady asked me out on a date and took me to a movie.
I could not wait to see the leap day. And on the 28th of February I thought that all my troubles were over, and I could find true love the next day.
I survived the disappointment of not finding the true love with the consolation in April that I could discard my elbow crutches which I was using post surgery and instead go back to my single walking stick. Phew, what a relief that was! On the other hand, April started my troubles with my late father’s health taking a sudden turn for the worse with his kidney beginning to dysfunction.
Between April and till he died on September 6th, I went through the most harrowing time that I had ever experienced in my life. It also taught me a lot of lessons and some of my blogger friends beside my family and other friends, were ever ready to cheer me up when I hit bottom.
After that experience the relief that I felt is beyond my ability to express. Suffice it to say that I started doing many things that I was not able to do since the middle of 2011. Some of the events have been blogged about by me and I shall just briefly summarise by saying that I traveled a lot and caught up with family and friends and got involved in a number of things in Pune itself. As I look back, the last quarter of 2012 has been very busy and eventful and I am grateful for being where I am today.
And before I forget, the young lady who took me out on a date Clio left for her home Greece last night. But before she did she fulfilled a promise and gave me a solo performance on her harp. She is a professional harpist and I was privileged to hear some amazing music and I am grateful to her for that great performance.
Now I bid goodbye to a very eventful 2012 and wish all my readers a very happy 2013.
