Why am I writing about this? I suspect I am a sufferer. That's why. I hate the monsoons. I really really get the blues. I love the bright sunshine, not minding the heat one bit. When I wake up to a cloudy sky, I feel my heart plonking into my shoes and I long for the sun. If by chance some sunlight peeps through my heart sings, only to weep again when the sun disappears.
We've had such a miserable time this year! Rain, rain, rain, gloom, destruction, ghats collapsing, villages washed away. Huh! We don't need this. I sometimes think that this is the beginning of the Apocalypse! It may yet take centuries, but this is it. The start. We wretched humans have ruined the environment to bring about abnormal weather conditions. Anyway that is another matter that i do not wish to delve into right here right now!
It was sunny this morning so I dared to step out. By the time I returned it was gloomy again. I can see a tiny patch of brighter light now. Too tiny. Doesn't mean a thing. It will soon get dark again. The sound of cars on slick roads grates on the nerves. The sight of an open umbrella on the street the fabric undulating with pelting water drops raises the shackles! I must consult Mum the family psychiatrist. We don't even get exciting thunder and lightening here in the city. Speaking of the city, why should it rain in my area? I am miles away from the lakes. Let it rain in the blasted lakes, let my area remain hot and sunny. Sulkkkkkk.......... I'm in a major sulkkkk. :(
SAD is very appropriate nomenclature. At least a month and a half left before the sun shines constantly, and I can go out everyday. The rain is so crippling! I can work from home, writing you know, so I don't leave the house on a rainy day. Last year I had to pick up the kid from somewhere and I got splashed head to toe by a large car! Head to toe! What misery! What sorrow!
Sighhh! Perhaps I should send a rare prayer to RA, the Egyptian sun-god. Maybe I should become an ancient Egyptian, I would get to learn hieroglyphics!! Teehee. I'm getting silly now. Why not? The patch of light is getting brighter!
