I know, I know – I have been neglecting the blog. I think i might have writer’s block. The thing with writing is that you must just keep at it; that’s the only way to get past it. You cut yourself some slack, waiting for inspiration to strike, and before you know it you have arrived at Writer’s Block! Sticky place, that.
Yet it’s not as if it has been an uneventful month. The Big News is that the son has graduated from highschool. Pappu pass ho gaya!! Not just that, he has also managed a place at a good college down South to study the subject he wishes to. Yes, if all goes as per plan, he is slated to become an engineer in four years.
This is also a month of birthdays in the family, and everyone is a year older. The son can vote now. As for me, well… I don’t think 44 is any kind of a milestone… After 40, they seem to whiz by.
Yet, this birthday ended up special in many ways. The day began with the usual phone calls from my Mom and sis. Then my neighbour T walked in to wish me and reminded me about our lunch appointment – yes, T took me out to lunch! It was after a very long time that I actually liked everything I had ordered at a restaurant. Thank you, T, for a wonderful afternoon!
