I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted. I’ve got a LOT of stuff going on. It’s a period of learning new things, relearning old things, and the most difficult of all, waiting. I never rated myself high on patience anyway, but this has been the ultimate test.
Today was an idle day for a change. And a heavenly one; the rains look beautiful from our windows! I happened to be home from university. It was nice sitting with my parents, quietly, enjoying the rains.
There were children playing in the little water puddles. Looking at them, I suddenly sat up, thinking.
“What happened?” my mother asked.
A few seconds later I replied.
“I’ve forgotten how to make a boat!”
You know the ones; origami boats that we used to make in school. The ones we put in the water puddles during the rains.
Getting hold of some paper, I immediately started making one. I couldn’t see the steps in my mind at once, but my hands remembered. I guess this is one of the things that is like riding a bicycle; you don’t forget.
“Turns out I do remember how to make a boat.” I grinned at my mother.
I suppose this could have been the point where my mother told me to stop being ridiculous and grow up. Ha! She taught me how to make a ship! 🙂

Its really nice sitting around with your loved ones on a rainy day and do nothing at all! 🙂 I also saw that you are reading Dostoyevsky, Do tell me how you find it. I might dare reading it then! 😛
Well, yes, I was reading Dostoyevsky but then other stuff got in the way. It’s very interesting until now, but I’ll definitely talk about it once I find the time to finish it. 🙂
And that’s beautiful. And needed, I might add. Thank you. 🙂
Lovely post. It’s the little things in life that matter.
Very true. Thank you. 🙂
