My week long spa

I rarely talk in superlatives. But from where I am, right in the middle of the year, I think this (Jun 25 - Jul 2) is the best week I have had this year. I didn't realize how much I needed this until I was here and have been living through this week long spa. I have been sleeping after midnight, waking up near noon, reading a lot of poetry (Neruda, Shakespeare) and rambling on about nothings and little things that I am taking time now to notice, smile about and write.

I have watched every world cup match this week, followed the Wimbledon, the test series, the SL - ENG series and all local matches that happen next to my house. I am closely following the sensex, buying and selling stocks and laughing about it with my mom every day at three thirty. I am buying VCDs of my favorite movies - from Citizen Kane to Maniratnam favorites. And yeah, I have been talking to mom, sitting and cooking with her, visiting temples with her and cracking jokes only she'll enjoy. Apart from the few calls I got, and ONE sleepless night, work has been the last thing in my mind. Yeah, I could actually go meet a lot more friends who I haven't met in years. But if I weren't so lazy, I would feel a little more guilty :)

I should do this more often, I tell myself. Can one of you please remind me this once I get there? :)
