Plenty of Space
This highway made me feel peaceful today. away from everything. Its been a while since I
last saw a full sunset. On the right there are fields of grass extending until your eyes
can see and on the left the urban civilization, I am standing at the meeting point of it.
Its early winter here in India, it has started to become a little cold and gets foggy in the evenings, the colour of the sky is beautiful, the air is crisp and there s a strange ambience of nostalgia and comfort in the air. Usually I would have been thinking about a lot of if’s and was, while enjoying such an environment but today I just wanted to be away from everything, I just brought along my trusted companion my camera with me, that’s all the company I require for now. I would have enjoyed being high at that moment if I knew how to.
Only a few miles away from the city and I already felt a thousand times better, well it wasn’t the city I wanted to be away from, I wanted to be away from the things it was making me think about, things that occupied my mind without my consent, then there are certain things I am longing for, creative pursuits maybe and everything else, how stable the world appeared,
solitude is something magical, it wakes you up to those sensations which were numbed. I felt my consciousness expanding, it felt more open, relaxed and familiar with the unknown. I have started to contemplate this thought now “solitude over everything” appears more sensible,
real and Genuine, feels rich in every context.
I guess after all this years I may have finally got a glimpse of what it means when someone
says. “I need space.” There was plenty of space where I was.
