Whenever I don’t like being in the annoying crowd I start missing my couch and solitude! I get my energy back when I am home, inside pages of a favorite book or by smelling the flavor of something I baked that day! I love crowd but I do not love obnoxious company,I do not love spending time with shallowness and hollowness of words around me!
Solitude is an idea that I fall for pretty frequently. But I hardly go for a long hike or for a long drive alone! In real life, I don’t love being alone. I call it “solitude” when I have some favorite activities to do [ like reading, writing, cooking, photography etc!] without disturbance or have someone favorite to talk to! I am miserable without favorite people or work around me!
So when this weekend my husband planned to travel , I was planning a lot of things to keep my mind occupied : blog reading, writing, reading two new books, studying a new technology, studying photography tips, making travel plans for 2014, cooking chicken curry etc! And while increasing the length of that list, I was still trying to find a way to be with him in NYC . “Just to see the snow-wrapped Central Park” : I was giving this excuse to myself!
But I could not travel with him; I had office related activities going on the weekend too.
Now I don’t know where three days went! I read, wrote,spoke to all friends, did painting, ate, slept, worked. 72 hours vanished like some happy fractions of seconds!
And I made all of these pebble art pieces too while watching multiple movies on Netflix! I love abstract images ,so I started transforming pebbles to something completely different.
This time, I think, I nailed the reality of a lovely solitude!
