wet markets

IN the beginning, T4A sent an email to SNG, and it was good. Assurances were made, pleasantries were exchanged with sincerity despite their digital nature. I would take their wealthy, their sick, tell of them of the things that were evaporating like so much tropical rain and condense in them a regard for the ground beneath their feet, and then the saline deep which swallowed the ground. I would mould the young, for three months and then “we would see”.

I’m homesick, and I miss all the assorted things which we’ve crafted. Talks with Huggles about repeated dispatriation/repatriation spoke of cultural anaphylaxis, so I sat apprehensive. It doesn’t feel like I thought it would, but that’s not important. Balancing it however, is my fear of returning home without direction. And then there’s everything else. I don’t think I could ever stay in SNG; it’s just no such place.

The Company Avatar came to speak to me recently about what I was going to do with my self. Staring silently out the window, all these processes (above, abridged) became a realisation that I was going to stay, until November. I’m staying till then because neither three nor six months are long enough to be gone. I think to be properly gone, you have to miss out. And that’ll take longer; to have something to show.



  1. Bravo. Best of luck sir

    “His words are wise.”
    “His face is beard.”

    The coming-from and the going-to will be more valuable come Winter.

  3. the coming back is never as good as one imagines!good decision, stay and grow!
