Aide-mémoire!⠀ .⠀ I came out of that wooden door and it shut back on its own behind my back. She was sitting on the couch right in front. Her face was a little red, I couldn't understand. As soon as I approached her, I saw tears rolling down her eyes!⠀ .⠀ She didn't even know I had come out until I sat right next to her on the left. She quietly said in her Israeli accent. "Hey….you are back."⠀ .⠀ I couldn't say a word, I was presumably sad. But seeing her jotting down something in her handmade diary, which she bought somewhere from middle India while her explorations, I said, "What are you writing?"⠀ .⠀ "I'm in love. So I'm writing about it before the moment passes by." She replied while struggling to smile.⠀ .⠀ I smiled back even though I too was feeling sadness.⠀ .⠀ I waited another few minutes, for her to finish. Then I asked, "May I see it?"⠀ .⠀ She said, "No, I can't let you see, it's personal. It's between me and Mama India."⠀ .⠀ I giggled, listening to her kiddish response. But I respected her decision of not showing me the mémoire.⠀ .⠀ Then she laughed through her tears while spilling a few of 'em (tears) on my face when she shook her face with laughter, and said, "Oh! my dear, I wrote about this entire journey I took through India and people I met, like you! It's really difficult for me to think about the fact that I'm leaving in a few hours. I love India and every time I come back I experience something new through which I find a new piece of my soul.That's what makes me keep coming back."⠀ .⠀ "Will you come back again next time?" I asked.⠀ .⠀ "Of course, I will. To touch the surface of this great country, To touch the water of the mother Ganges! To meet you!! I pretty sure will come back!" She replied smiling while still having her eyes wet.⠀ .⠀ She moved forward teary eyed and we hugged each other.⠀ .⠀ "Is she an old Indian soul, who crave for her motherland while being in the body of an Israeli woman?" I though while we hugged.⠀ .⠀ After hugging I looked into her eyes and I had the answer.⠀ .⠀ #story⠀ #israel⠀ #miti⠀ #woodendoor⠀ #contemplation⠀ #love⠀ #tears⠀ #sadness⠀ #hapiness
Article I’m pondering on —
Difference between Gargoyles vs. Grotesque. – If you wonder about the Gothic structures like I do when I’m walking the streets of South Bombay. It always made me curious when I saw ugly sculptures sitting fixed on those beautiful buildings some sprouted water and some didn’t.
This article will solve that mystery. Check it out.
What am I watching —
Perspective – Re-sharing one of my favourite apple videos. It is inspiring, it provokes emotions. Maybe it will help you see things differently.
Quote I’m pondering on lately –
