It’s 15th of May.
April was about mult-tasking, managing every single task with a smile, writing and photographing every day. May is much brighter, even though fifteen days evaporated too fast, but I don’t want to complain.
I planned to practice mindfulness this month, staying in the present and focusing on what is important. I also visited library and brought home too many books that I wanted to read for a long time. One is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling; I came across so many Mindy fans in last month. The other book that I’m enjoying the most is Portions From A Wine-stained Notebook, because you know I’m a fan of Bukowskian Philosophy
, or something like that.
“They say time heals all wounds, but that presumes the source of the grief is finite”
― Cassandra Clare
I adored the quote a week ago; it made me wonder how words are so powerful, how it can shake your heart on a fine day!
May is also a month of allergy, warm sunshine and little rain; the kind of month when I walk a tightrope and say, “Ya! Now my life is pretty balanced!”
It rained finally yesterday, I am not sure if it had any impact on the drought, but it surely made my soul dance. Who doesn’t love rain in late May in California?
And even though I cut down blogging for some time, didn’t touch the photographs and the camera, I missed people I know through blogging. So strange how we become friends by falling for each other’s words! This month I read some of my poems to real world people and got compliments. That experience made me think about this difference between real and virtual world and how words that we hear and words that we read seem so different. I have to write that out pretty soon.
For next two weeks, I don’t want to sing “Love yourself” like the social media, but I’ll try to envelope life’s melancholy in bright flowers, good books, and warm food because right now this allergy and my runny nose are quite annoying.
The title is inspired by this song.
