A lot of people have been asking me where I was in last few days and why I was missing…
Firstly – I’m fine! All is well on my side… Thank you so much for the concern. You have no idea how much it means to me.
Now – I was on an impromptu family vacation to Goa for a week and reached back last night. I’m sorry for not informing you before hand. I didn’t write about it and didn’t tell you before leaving like I always do because we were not sure till the last moment.
Once it was confirmed, I booked my tickets in the evening and left by the late night flight via Mumbai to Goa. I didn’t want it to flop like last time, so kept my fingers crossed.
Time flew away and 7 days ended like they never existed. Holidays are always like that… they end too quickly. I posted a few pics on Instagram, mainly to inform people so that you don’t get worried about my sudden disappearance. So, my insta followers knew where I was.
This post is about my strong connection with all of you because I miss this place and all the people I talk to, when I’m not here! It’s like my second home. My stories keep pulling me, here…
The main source of this connection is my laptop… So I have a subtle connection with my laptop which I deeply cherish!!
I always carry my laptop and diaries on every vacation, outings etc because I find writing flows more smoothly and deeply when you are with nature and with yourself and family. So, I was really excited for this holiday as I expected to relax a lot and write a lot….
Honestly, I had hoped to write and post updates in this holiday, like I always do…
Early mornings and late nights are always for writing and when everyone is asleep, I get peace by penning a few thoughts or writing the course of stories in my mind… but guess what… some glitch has to find me by default…
I opened my laptop on the 2nd day of the vacation… a beautiful, peaceful day when it was raining heavily and the sea was right outside my window… I was so carried away by the blissful moment that I clicked a few pictures, made a video and decided to get drenched in the rain after so many years…
When I returned after 3 hours, totally rejuvenated and feeling like writing, I realised that my laptop was kept open on the desk by the balcony while heavy sea breeze laden with moisture kissed it all over 😀
Lost the motherboard of my laptop!!
Thankfully, the data was saved but couldn’t write a word for the entire trip 🙁
so, while kids played and slept till late, hubby was still doing his work ( always on phone … who was getting anxious?? Me!!!
Itching to write a few words or maybe an update…
Long hours were spent watching the sea, the rainfall and the sand! If you want to know how absolute tranquility feels laced with subtle anxiety – this was it!!!
Now, I can say that I have felt every feeling in the world 😀
On a serious note, I wrote in my diary, nevertheless… But I want to write Tangles & Ties and Beyond Every Border… By the time, my vacation ended, I was quite close to getting a panic attack, wondering if I lost all my works… but hubby assured me that he will find it all somehow… lol…
I saved myself by writing few poems in my diary… I will share them some day!
Finally, I’m back home… I have given my laptop for repair and I hope to get it by evening today! I can’t wait to update as I miss my stories more than any reader can ever can 😀
Pray for my best friend, my love, my source of happiness and my connection with all of you – My laptop 😀 😀
Lots of love to all of you… Missed talking to all of my regulars here…
Stay blessed 🙂
( PS: In the comments, tell me about THAT one ‘thing’ … ( not person, no human) … a material thing who is your love, your best friend, source of happiness – without which life would be incomplete … and were you ever close to losing it… how did it feel??
For me, it’s my laptop, my diary and pens… And I love and treasure them like my life 🙂
Thanks for reading!
