The act of missing

memory

What do you do when you miss a person? I cling to something that feels/smells/reminds me of her/him? In my moment of missing, I cling to the ear-ring both of us bought together in a city which is not home to either of us. It was a gift for me. Not a ‘surprise’(liberalised India is now obsessed with the element of surprise in relationships) gift but it smells of ‘us.’

I never wear the same ear-ring for two consecutive days. But I have been wearing this beautiful ear-ring for the last two days. May be I will also wear it tomorrow. If my heart still continues to ache/long. You know, the act of missing. A person.

I dream of opening a cafeteria in the mountains, owning a beach home on the shores of Bay of Bengal... but right now, they all seem like wild dreams.. A gypsy at heart --- am passionate about life, music, words, cooking for people I love, soaking in the lashing rain and just looking at the changing colours of the sky.... And I am a great fan of the Indian Railways and I long to travel in First Class AC coupe across India.....with my man
