It has been a while since I thought of you. Monday is always a long day for me, and today is one of those days when melancholy and her siblings visit. I just cannot shake it off, this feeling of loneliness and sadness. I guess the process of moving had something to do with it as well.
My house has been my home for as long as I can remember. Not to mention my room, the refuge from everything and everyone all these years. Those times when I could just shut the door and escape the unbearable realities of life. Or savouring the quietness of being alone with just my books as company. Or just let my imagination wander (I’ve loads of unfinished stories from those trips).
Another reason for my current state of mind is due to the meeting with old friends yesterday. The wedding of a university mate where I met up with people from my past, whom I’ve not seen since graduating. There were even a couple of Nihonjins who flew in just for the event. It was really nice to meet everybody but I returned home feeling drained and tired.
I guess I needed cheering up and that’s why I thought of you. Although I didn’t think it appropriate but I’m feeling slightly better now. Hope you had a good Monday.
