I'M BACK

We returned a few hours ago from Kolkata. Mumbai welcomed us back with a glimpse of the still-fresh-faced Juhi Chawla at the airport (reel-life star-gazing) and still-endless-traffic jams all the way to Borivili (real-life tyre-gazing).

Now the children and spouse are fast asleep (real life dream-gazing), the bags are unpacked, the letter-box cleared, and I'm once again in front of my favourite screen, wriggling my fingers experimentally and typing (virtual-life screen-gazing). The sense of upliftment, of excitement, of brain-eye-hand in tandem performing linguistic gymnastics (not of a very high order, though), that sense of relaxation and thrill juxtaposed....

I love writing, I really really do. Don't you?

Writing is food for the soul to me. Writing is a sedative, an excitement, a relaxation, a stimulation. An entertainment.
I wrote professionally from the age of 15 (no higher education for a girl said my father) and I still do some for money, at an advanced age.
Mostly though these days it is for all of the (unpaid)above.
It'especially exciting when someone reads what you write and are in turn stimulated, entertained and ... and ... and ...
Welcome back from your holiday.

Welcome back, Sucharita. And I totally understand the Real-life-tyre-gazing . I just got back from Pune myself; two hours to Mumbai outskirts, and two more hours in traffic jams a few miles from my house.....

Thanks Pinku,

glad to know you understand, but then, having the itch and having the time to indulge the itch are two separate issues altogether, aren't they?
