are fun. Running around, gathering wild lemons, digging, collecting stones, and
me – eating all the time. But as it happens, when we have a good time, we tend
to make a mess. In fact, I believe it is not possible to be organized and have
fun at the same time. Just incomprehensible. So inevitably, at the end, when it
is time to leave, we have to clean up. Everything goes back to its place, toys
back, garbage in the bin, mats folded & hats back on heads. Everything is
organized just to be scattered again.
It’s the same (kind of) with end of the year. Come December
and somehow I feel compelled to sort and wrap up everything. Just to be taken
out and scattered in the coming year. And had fun with. You know, having fun
requires one to make a mess.
here. And it feels every bit like I supposed it would. Noisy bliss I call it.
And it’s the best kind of bliss.
The other day, little
T found two ball bearings that in the school play-ground. That day when I went
to pick him up from school, he was so visibly excited to see me. He said
(perfectly mimicking my tone I must add), “Mommy, I have a surprise for you.”
Then he added, “I
found two beautiful today. So I got them for your necklace.” J
Those little shiny
ball bearings are the best gifts I have ever received.
Thanks to my younger one, our sleep has become less and intermittent.
For me bad sleep brings on weird dreams. Or may be its just that I remember them more.
Anyways, so yesterday(night?) my dream was setup in a pre-apocalypse kind of setup. The terrain was rocky and mountainous with rickety spiraling, iron stairs with broken steps. And I vaguely recall people going about their day while being scared all the time.
Anyway, so the dream somehow got me running in a building. So what did I do, I picked up a mattress(yes a full sized one) and used it as some kind of a pole (mattress ?) vault to quickly cover the distance.
Yup. Quarter to three in the afternoon - thats my most favorite time of the day. Specially on days when it has rained in the morning, but got miraculously clear afterwards.
The sun is at that perfect angle to light up the trees and leaves so that they seems greener, the sky is at its bluest, good lunch makes people happier and sleepier and a good cup of tea picks them right up.
Enough time has passed since the morning so that you can feel accomplished by all that you did that day, yet you are left with enough daylight hours to finish anything left to do.
Yes, quarter to three is the best time of the day. Today.
