Scattered gray clouds tucked behind the tops of a couple of trees.

I’ve been running around in circles
Pretending to be myself
Why would somebody do this on purpose
When they could do something else?

I want to believe
That if I go outside I’ll see a tractor beam
Coming to take me to where I’m from
I want to go home

Suddenly she realised that what she was regretting was not the lost past but the lost future, not what had not been but what would never be.

A late evening shot from Marine Drive, Mumbai. Mostly a dull sky and a dull sea, broken in the middle by a few buildings very far away.

On the move.

Like before, chasing stillness.
In awe of human constructs and simple math.
Finding a new place again, aren’t you.
Doesn’t have to be where you come from.
It’s home as long as you have no name.

I’ve been worrying where the roads I’m choosing will take me. All the time. For real. Sometimes waking up with as little as four hours of sleep. Because worry. Obviously.

It’s been a long time without much movement. But also many changes, even where I’m standing and not much else.

I hope I’m able to shake the stillness off.

Here’s to it.

Not mine. Just the third I’ve been to.

I was very tired and sleepy today. I’ve not been sleeping well lately. This was going to be as simple as putting on a presentable avatar, booking a taxi, sitting, laughing, and booking a taxi back. So I decided to go despite my condition.

Of course, I had already paid money for this, so, that’s totally a reason too. The show was nice. It was good to be laughing. In a room full of people who were also laughing.

The weather has been…not brutal the last couple of days. That’s the best I can say — and only for the mornings and the evenings. I’m leaving Mumbai soon. With things that are happening in my personal life (that caused me to take off from Fosstodon and Twitter too!), I’m going out whenever I can. It’s nice to break monotony and go anywhere at all.

Today it was South Mumbai. I always love coming to the promenade here. It’s so calming.

Juhu Beach is a lovely place to come to and spend a few minutes at. Until next time, friend.
