There’s no point in having a window with a view if you never look out of it.
Yesterday was such a beautiful day – not rainy, not sunny…just perfect! It didn’t even matter that it was a working day and I was at office in the middle of a busy schedule. I took my work up to the terrace with a cup of lemon tea and spent an hour quietly immersed in numbers and charts, occasionally indulging in the sneaky joy of being distraced by the birds on the banyan tree next door.
What bliss, what luxury! In the midst of a maddening city beset by horrible weather, I found myself experiencing something rare, virtually unfamiliar – contentment. I wasn’t thinking that I’d rather be out shopping or watching a movie or swimming or curled up in bed with a book. Everything was as it was; perfect.
I worked late into the evening leaving just a breath before 10 and it took me close to an hour to get home, stuck in traffic jams and bad roads on the way. But it was a perfect day.
And today it rained. *Sigh*
At least I was given yesterday and I took it.
