EXUBERANCE IS BACK!!!
Well there is absolutely nothing like a trip back home to recharge your batteries
and now i am back from one..back with all my lost exuberance and zest for life
well slept..well fed..and more than anything well loved..thats how i feel right now..
all i did at home was sleep sleep sleep..eat eat n eat(as a result of which i am fatter than ever :D )
and yes i did go to my nani's place and played wall-e-ball with little kids ranging from 2-5 yr olds..it was awesome..had the best time i had had in a loooooooooong time
there is something about being with kids..i turn into a kid myself...free..naughty..up for anything..or may be i never really grew up..this kid is always lurking below the surface..ready to run away and take control..
so there i was running around jumping hurling the big red beach ball across the wall just with all the gusto and competitiveness of a 5 yr old..a kid again
an it was a real blessing..incomparable bliss :sigh:
it was as if all the tensions of the grown up world melted away and all that was left.. were the hoots of joy every time the ball flew across the low wall to the other team's side and the little scared mispronounced "shits" from those little mouths each time we lost a point
in the end we managed to lose one match and win one
but above all that the evening earned me some well-compensated-for challas in my feet,
the title for the best di everrr which sounded so much better than any title i have ever earned
and a wake-up call..a reminder of what i had been losing out on.. a reminder of what it is like to live life in moments and not let the rest bog you down..
that one evening of complete abandon did more to raise my spirits and pull me out of the dark pit of depression than n number of counseling sessions or heart-to-heart talks could ever do..
i don't know..i just feel so good right now..
nothing else matters..
you can hurt me all you want..
pull me down..
rob me of money.. rob me of dignity.. rob me of love..
but u can't take this away from me..
can't rob me of these moments..the moments i call life...
so here i am rejuvenated..back from zombie-land into the land of laughter and fun..jokes and abandon..
back to living up to my name...Umang aka Exuberance :D
