We visit places all the times & then on some occasions, we do revisit them. However, every time there is a fresh perspective, new outlook. Sanjay & me tool a memorable vacation in Canada during the summer of 2007. We visited Montreal & Ottawa for some 7 odd days & boy, it was so much fun. I had to visit Ottawa for some immigration related issues this winter, which after much deliberation I gave myself the extra push & landed in the much dreaded Canada winter. This time, I spent almost 5 days alone in Ottawa, which means lot of time for introspection in my world.
Ottawa was freezing, -33C to be precise! I was brave to walk almost 20 blocks the first night only to holler at a cab on my way back. The next afternoon, while taking a stroll through downtown, the canal where I took several pictures in 2007 was frozen & people were commuting on top of it with skates. The guard was missing; don't blame him! It took me back in time to realize that this place is still as interesting or boring, the way one would like to look at it, but minus my soulmate I was finding it cumbersome. This makes me think may be we should not revisit place where we have good memories from, just save them in some corner of our mind & move on. One may be disappointed the next time.
