"you're squawking like a pink monkey bird
And I'm busting up my brains for the words"
david bowie

A break from broken images.

for an update.
and a little venting this evening.

Once again our family of three packs our life into boxes and moves to another home. Whitefield to Indiranagar (oh no I've revealed my location to serpents and stalkers. Sigh!)
the 10th house in 11 years of breathing in this city.
I crave stability. Physical stability if nothing else.
My room. "The lions den"
was like a rainbow. I had fairy lights hanging from the ceiling like stars made of colours that were always on.
I've had a blue wall, an ochre wall and finally a plum wall.
All painted with me two hands.. There were papier mache mexican dolls that I made sitting all around me. Posters. Paintings. Lyrics.
The handprints of friends and lovers.
pieces of broken mirrors on the walls reflecting the light.
pieces of the ocean (shells.testubes of sand).
My little carnival of souls and squiggly worms!

Ofcourse one can recreate it and all but its so damn frustrating.
I'm tired of losing homes and I'm tired of losing people.
though indiranagar promises to do wonders for my social life,I am annoyed.

I want a puppy. more than anything. i met a brown stray puppy a while ago and called her lakshmi. there are more puppies near my house. they are black and white and live in a gutter. I call them my gutterpuppies and feed them rotis. they like rotis. I like them.

Sine Qua Non said...

excuse the childish enthusiasm.im a smitten kitten when it comes to the thin white duke:)
hope you find lotsa nice neighbours.a few hot ones too.the pain of shifting houses....ugh.i thought no one knew that one better than me.the fear of growing too attached to a place because soon enough it's time to leave...homes suddenly become houses again, bereft of your belongings and memories.
