I checked up on the dictionary the definition of the verb “emerge”, and here is what I came up with. So, to “emerge” is:
1. to move out or away from a surrounding fluid, covering, or shelter: seals emerging from the water; animals emerging from the forest.
a. To come into view: The house emerged in the fog.
b. To become conscious: emerge from sleep.
c. To become known or prominent after being in obscurity: evidence that emerged from the investigation; new leaders that emerged from the party ranks.
3. To come into existence: a period when many new life forms emerged.
I have “emerged” after a small operation and it feels like waking up to the wonders of this world again. Being born again in a way.
Fortunately, all went well, it was a routine operation.
But still, the experience of “emerging”, makes me wonder if it is similar to the one a baby has, arriving in this world.
As adults, we have formed a conscience, but still, emerging offers a new look, a new possibility to start over, to see things in a different light!
