Everywhere I looked, I saw paddy fields, tall trees, boulders with streams; temporary and permanent, snaking around..Every now and then, a gentle breeze and a few bird songs, some that I recognised and many I didn't. Much like in a song, a meaningful 'pause' gave this day an inexplicable charm.
It has exactly been 209 days since I last screamed a cheerful "Bye" to my family as I strapped my boots and headed out on an adventure. The world is busy chanting, "Stay home, Stay safe". While a voice in my brain is screaming, yearning to let go. "Pack the essentials and leave", it says. But yes, I am a sane human being, I will wait, patiently, for I know that this too, will pass.
