Lilies, roses, daisies and tulsi bloom in our balcony. In other corners of the house there are money plants and the christmassy poinsettia… they and I have our early morning chats when I water them and the rest of the house is asleep. There is so much peace to be found in this daily humdrum activity of watering them and watching them grow…
Half of last year I spent making a film. The rest of it has been travel and blissful domesticity… Though makemytrip would have one believe that we stressed out souls at work need that Greek holiday to recharge… making some homemade jam, growing these plants, fixing jigsaw puzzles with a 3 year old can be far more powerful recharges! 🙂 Simple routine things are what I find incredibly restorative to the body, mind and soul… I can see raised eyebrows of friends who hate the daily drudgery but look at it this way – by setting those simple routines, there is a rhythm that we set into our lives. I don’t think anyone gives enough credit to that simple rhythm or the people who set it.
Perhaps in a few months time I will feel differently and leap back to wanderland, but till then… 🙂
Happy 2015 everyone. I hereby resolve to write inanities on this blog more often. Much love.
