Friends

I know I don’t say it often enough (not even to myself really) but I love my friends, some more than others. It’s funny how there are only a handful of them who I’m willing to call ‘friends’. We all went to school together and that’s it, never again did our choice of college of work place co-inside ever again. But then…

Sure, we’ve had our moments more than meets the eye, but what matters is that we are still there for each other. Pardon my cliche, but when I say ‘being there’ I don’t mean it in an all-encompassing way. My friends are a bizarre lot, well lets see- we hardly speak to one another, we rarely lend a shoulder to cry on, we seldom know what’s going on in the other person’s life, we have hardly expressed our love for each other on social media and the works.

That evening was something else I tell you.

He asked me about the infuser and what kind of tea I drink and weirdly stared at the pot for a few more seconds and called it ‘cool’ repeatedly. I smiled and accepted his compliments on my pot’s behalf. (No pun intended btw). And then he stared at it some more and left. Continue reading

Snowy Seattle

I have been over wordy these days! So, I want to let the pictures do the talking this time around. It snowed in Seattle yesterday. Again. Two times in two months. And I spent all of the Saturday morning at the Lake.
Birds chirping. Snow fall. Numbed senses. Cherry Red lips. Skinny love on repeat in my head. Murali. A frantic chick in her pajamas.
