Well, a break of two and a half months again. And not without a reason.
Home, sweet home, could never have been more appropriate as it has been in the past ten weeks. So you have all the time in the world. So why don't you mail everyone you know, talk to everyone you would like to, and blog everyday and let the world know about what is happening in your life? Well, frankly, I couldn't care less! Who cares what you have (or don't have) to do at home! It's the best place on earth, no matter whatever you may think at any point in your life. Two months at home at a stretch, at this age... I won't say I haven't been irritated with the constant postponement of my joining dates on my job, but I keep telling myself: "When can you DREAM next of another two months like this?"
And I know the answer to that. At least not soon. Definitely.
Years later, when you get back from the places you are, things would have changed. People would have changed. Lives would have changed. But Home remains. Somehow it's the perpetual non-changing entity... something that lasts forever.
You have to leave home, but someday you'll to get back to it. That's when we all realize there's no place... like home.

@renu: got inspired to write this post after reading matt's signature on his gmail:

Cuz everything I want - is everything that's there
And when when we're all together - there's nothing to fear
And wherever I wander - the one thing I've learned
It's to there - I will always....always return

beautiful lines! i guess this will make all the more sense to me a coupla months down the road!

CJ said...

hmm... i donno if he wrote it himself... but still :)
u're right abt the blogging thing... things u think are too long-drawn out and overly emotional to talk out to people directly u just dump them on blogspot... and now it sounds so much better! :D
