I haven’t started my report yet. I just cannot get myself to type out the first word even when it is the report of the most exciting phase of my recent past. I do not know how do I get to start my first word on the report. Maybe, maybe it is because once the report is done I’ll know for sure it is all over. Maybe, I do not want to move forward from the space I am in right now. I do not want to take the flight tomorrow. Same time next year I might have a clear decision on where I will be for the next two or three years.For now, I’m a confused soul who is stuck between what I should be doing and what the heart wants.

Now that my best friend also passed out, I’m left with no other option than to hope Mr Sleep is kind enough and visits me soon else I will be forced to revisit my life starting from my childhood and critisize every choice I made, maybe wonder a little about the universe, feel jealous of people who would have found their Mr Sleep right now and are gloriously snoring away and think about all the wonderful things I can do waking up early in the morning tomorrow. Maybe I’ll drink a warm cup of coffee looking at the sunrise and go for a jog around the lake. Where’s Mr Sleep? I hope he doesn’t surprise me like usual and leave me with no time to complete my future planning… Yeah so I’ll have breakfast after that, go visit my friend later… I am also going to have a…
The pleasure you get to see the tree you planted flowering for the first time, surpasses any other pleasure. This I know is true as I see the elated face of my neighbor Valli aunty’s face, as she spotted the first flowers on her Konna Maram 🙂
Happy tree first flowering day to her 🙂
