There is always a First Time

There is always a first time for everything and our reactions to those "first time" encounters, although quite diverse, fall in a definite pattern. We elders cleverly mask our expressions most of the times while experiencing such "first time" events but children do not bother to conceal their facial canvases. Rather than posting travel photos like a regular travel blogger, I decided to stay back with my photo blogger's tag and pick out photos from my travel collection based on a specific theme. Frankly speaking, today's theme "There is always a First Time" was the product of retrospection, unlike what I used to do previously. First I had selected these three children photographs from my Puri/Konark travel collection and then scratched my scalp to coin a theme that would link them. Please let me know if I could do justice to the theme.

I think our reactions to any "first time" thing can be broadly dissected into three stages :-

Stage 1- This is the stage of uncertainty, unbalanced desire, risk calculation and repeated self rationalization.

Stage 2- Once we proceed to this second stage, we start to act. Apprehension of the outcome makes us shaky but the bias born out of multiple levels of self rationalization right at Stage 1, keeps the momentum high. We keep dreaming and aspiring all throughout this stage.

Stage 3- This is the final stage and indeed the most variable one. Mental state varies from extreme joy to severe disappointment. Sometimes we simply feel a state of "zero gravity"!

Today's photo discourse ends here and just to remind you once again, many more travel photos of Puri and Konark are waiting inside my portable drive, screaming to get posted!
