One of them bad-health days – cured now

Filed under: Daily Rot — Cris @ 10:05

I don’t feel too well today. Just one of those bad-health days I guess. You are not sick, you don’t have a running cold but you just don’t feel good.

The air condition in the office was not helping me. I decide to walk out, get some sun. But today it was all shady. No bad UV rays to hit you โ€“ just when you need them!

I don’t know how those rays could cure me, but anything that could rub some warmth on me should be good enough.

As soon as I get out, there comes a strong breeze and blows away my duppatta โ€“ right at the entrance that should have been a pretty picture. But luckily no colour rose on my face. No embarrassment. I felt happy for some reason.

And then I start imagining: I run into people I know – I talk, they talk: so my lips are busy moving. But for some strange reason I cooked up a scene I would much rather not live in real life. So, not feeling too good about it. Imagination should have a lock and key you know, it should know some bounds!

The walk was good and I wished it would go on for a long time. But the route I took proved too short and I am back in no time. The same AC room. The same torturing health problems. I don’t feel creative so I decide to write out my frustration,. And that is what you see here.

Has it helped me? Well at least I wasn’t doing nothing.

And yes, I will admit this is also an attempt to get in touch with my writing again โ€“ writing without a reason, writing for writing. It always feels good when I do that. It’s just about starting to work now. Am not jumping up with joy, but I think I will survive. Checking – sniff sniff – yep still breathing.

Hey wait a minute, a friend called to see me now. We talked for a few minutes, seeing after months and honestly, really, truly, I feel good. I really do. Maybe it was the mind all the time. Or maybe one of those mind-cured-body stories. ๐Ÿ™‚
