To love and to hold...

It is always nice when you have time to do all those things that you have been putting off for one reason or another. That is how I feel at the moment. My evenings and weekends are all mine and I can do whatever I want with them!

I have started sketching and painting again and am really enjoying it. I am also reading a lot more and have been learning Telugu (finally!). I am loving my work at the moment and am appreciating what I have in life in general.

There is a certain routine to life now – and I like it that way. I am enjoying doing all those little chores that I feel like I never had time for before. Things like organising the pantry, picking flowers for the vase or thinking of what sort of cushions will look nice. Those sorts of domestic things are no longer a “luxury” – if that makes sense!

Both Sudarshan and I are really enjoying the time we are spending together – we like being able to do what we want when we want. There seem to be no restrictions and we are enjoying every minute.

I remember feeling like this towards the end of my degree, just before my PhD, prior to getting married and then again immediately after Sudarshan and I moved out.

Every phase in life must be beautiful in its own way.
