brightly awake

thats what i was today at 7 am. felt good. even mum was not yet awake though my teeth brushing noises got her up soon enough. she was wondering why i need to be up so early (!) on a sunday. but then i could never loll in bed once awake. that too so brightly. though it was in the middle of a random dream about being in delhi and having messed up my return flight booking and dealing with irritating delhi auto-wallahs and considering having jet airways fix my flight to an earlier one without penalty. i am going to get flowers from the garden to make a garland now. mum prays everyday in a vague way and feels happy enough to hang my garland on the little god-statues i have in my antique cabinet. i am happy to remember a childhood skill of making flower garlands. not to mention the still strange and unique pleasure of pottering in a garden in the morning and getting a bowl full of white flowers from there and being amazed at how many more of them still are there on the trees. and today i spy a hibiscus too. bright red. like blood. i am going to leave that there. and yes, i am back almost to normal.

Dreamt of being in Delhi?? hey I WAS in Delhi at that time :) and the new look to your blog is nice. Changes are always good but then the widgets don't stay - you need to add them all over again I guess(If I am not wrong).

Each time you mention the garden, my mind conjures up an image of Lord Emsworth.

airspy, good one! makes me feel even better about it. despite my sorry excuse for a garden being nothing that Angus McAllister would be caught dead in. Though yes, Raju does act scottish at times. :-)
