You know how uneasy I was yesterday about how I had been feeling since mister left? Someone at work told me today that these feelings are a bit like a fever. You obviously don’t like it but it’s like your body is trying to fight an infection – so it’s basically a good thing because the only way to get better is to stay sick.
I was stupefied at how silly she sounded and how much she rambled, but I think her basic point was that I should just suck it up coz life isn’t really fair and to whine about your own whining is, well, retarded and pointless.
So I decided to just whine when I feel like it and not beat myself up about it. And then I decided to take up a new fixxation – something I can completely immerse myself in while I can’t indulge in my original obsession.
I have been toying with the idea of taking up Samba lessons for a while now, but no dance school in Delhi teaches it. (Why the fuck not?) Did I tell you that dance is my favorite art form?
Photography is a close second and an obvious intuitive choice.
(Okay, there might have been a nudge or two from Michelle and Indian Girl in that direction, but in my defense I bought the camera first!)
I have some two pictures to share with you today, both taken at night. I hope you like them!
This picture was taken in Udaipur, the city of lakes. It was late in the night, and my ex-husband and I were trying to find some place to eat. We starved that night.
This one is from Pushkar. You see two temples – Savitri temple at the peak of the mountain, and the Brahma temple at the foot. Mister and I were on a vacation earlier this year, and hung out a lot at Laura’s cafe. This pic was taken from their rooftop.
