Raghav and I were having this conversation about the kind of house we
want to move into....we have seen a few, but everything is still hanging
:)...so were going through mentally the houses we had seen and what we
liked or did not like about each one.
There is this one house that
both Raghav and Srinath liked, but I didn't....they love it for all the
facilities (swimming pool especially) and for it being on the 10th
floor.....so I was sharing how I was feeling about that house....that I
was not too comfortable with heights, and that perhaps there, I had to
change my way of living a lot....as there was no space to do any
gardening (which incidentally he had gotten me into!) and maybe even
composting or segregating garbage, and how I was really liking all that
now...and he so matter-of-factly turned around and told me: "Yes amma,
but you can continue doing your gardening until we move there!"
beautiful learning that was for me, who slips in so easily back into
those paths of old....stuck like guava seeds in one's teeth :)....I have
now resolved to look at the NOW and enjoy whatever is left of what I can
do NOW.....even if we don't decide on that place.
Life is all about
letting go when you want to hold on isn't it? So simple and yet so hard!
