Wanting more.

He is here, my Mian is.

Travelling to Delhi despite jetlag just because I needed to go and we weren't prepared to be separated again. Gravely agreeing with me that the mould on the walls does add a certain decorative something. Good humouredly jumping headlong into the Great Game of stalking and appropriating our newspaper before the landlords 'borrow' it. Sharing with me the wonderful joy of a morning coffee while watching the world wake up. Eating a hastily made dahi-rice as if it was the most splendid thing ever.

And instead of wholeheartedly enjoying this, I am grumpy because he leaves in a fortnight. Somewhere inside me is the ability to be thankful for the now, to not let tomorrow spoil today. I need to find it, that's all.

Enjoy the fortnight, and may the memories sustain you for a long time. I have less than a fortnight to go before the Guy comes back.

Next time you are in Pune, my treat at Kapila.

I am so happy to hear you are together again. Wish there was something I could say that would help you with your struggle of "grumpiness" but all I can offer is (((HUGS))).
