It’s certainly not the way you planned it out to be. But then again, when have things ever gone according to the big plan? The anguish over a painful loss witnessed recently has been a sobering shake up. The aftermath of the exam, tinged with regret. Regret over what could’ve, should’ve and would’ve been. That niggling sense of incompleteness and uncertainty still prevails.
But for now- just for now- relax. There’ll be trips to plan, higher studies to worry about, weight to lose and the rat race to join. Lets keep all that for later, shall we?
So, breathe. Take in the colours of the sunset. Grimace at the heady, too sweet effect of your drink and lean back. Its breathtakingly beautiful out here and already all your worries have melted into the blue-gold sunset.
All right, not all. Most of them.
The squirrel you befriended is gently nudging you with its tiny paws, asking for more bread rolls and watermelon.
Pearl jams playing softly in the background. A paperback, half open on your lap. Go on. Drink up.
On second thoughts, take your time.
We can wait.
