You may have noticed I am a little more reticent these days. A little more reclusive. Gone are the stories of sleeping in parks, going home with strangers, and chatting with organized crime.
Calgary is not a town of all-night parties or surreal social encounters. It is a quiet, conservative, wealthy prairie town. The nearest city of similar size is a four hour drive due North through fields of cows and grass.
Supplanted from all my existing social networks in a town, despite being my home town, more foreign to me than Hong Kong, it takes time to gain a foothold and establish a new mental order.
From past experience, I find it takes me roughly four months to register my niche in a new environment. Concatonating the three and a half separated months I have spent in Calgary since returning suggest I am close to the threshold. And I can feel it.
