such is life...perhaps

Trouble with having a 4 days vacation is that one is in more need of a vacation when it ends; especially if you were behind the wheels for close to 1000 miles in 4 days.

Past 4 weeks flew past as swiftly as past 4 days of road trip; parents, sister and niece came and now they’ll leave tomorrow and I feel guilty of not spending any quality time with them.

Long time back, hmm 10 years to be precise, I once said to a friend – “people have some talent to express themselves, some write good poetry, some are good singers, or can weave web of words to really mesmerize others, like‘ve a way or two to stand out and there are some who when asked couldn’t even tell directions properly even if they’ve been traveling on same route all their lives….” and perhaps I belong to second group of people.

It’s going to be same scene as it was when I came back after 4 weeks vacation at home, coincidently they too are leaving after 4 weeks here, it going to emotional, mom will cry openly, sister will cry quietly; Dad and I will not look in each other’s eyes.
