I have about 7 days to go before I join work and I must say I’m glad this vacation is coming to an end. Three and a half months is just a little too long to have to oneself.

I have no regrets about the way I spent my time. I traveled all over the country, played tennis, spent time with family and friends, read dozens of books and wrote quite a bit. I’ve done a fair bit of introspecting too.

It’s taken the better part of three months to figure out how to proceed with my book and now I can say I have a rough idea of how I should go about it.

That said and done, I need to do something to feel useful again. I’m tired of living in my head, of idly surfing the internet, of relentless orkutting, of checking my mail every hour, of spending too much time on Gtalk just waiting for someone to talk to, of reading every single blog on the planet and just feeling lonely all day. I even went to a movie all by myself once. It was not a thrilling experience.

I can now sympathize with retired pensioners and desperate housewives. It does not matter how smart or sensible you are. Sit at home all day and pretty soon you are going to go soft in the head.

Here’s to a new life :-). Cheers.

Hi

You don't know me. But I want to say that I really like your blog- and believe me, I'm not a person who's easily satisfied. You are a very talented writer. Your writing style reminds me of Ruskin Bond (for some obscure reason). I wish you all the very, very best. I hope someday I'll be able to write as well as you do.
