The rains have a way with people. Ever noticed it?
I don’t know if it is snuggling together over hot tea in the cold, damp weather or the topic of school day memories that triggered it but teatime at office today was heartwarming 🙂
I’d like to think of it as a bit of both or more frankly, the rains.
As the skies rumble, the day darkens under the heavy, black skies. Huge luscious Raindrops splatter down crooning ballads to the heart.
Sitting at the age old table around which teatimes have been enjoyed for years now, I watch each of my colleagues being wooed into the soothing notes of the rains. Nostalgia stirs awake in each eye. Lips curl into smiles at some distant memory of perhaps fighting with siblings over paper boats in the muddy waters of their homelands.
Somebody mentions the joy of her 3year old son in going to school today as he was excited about getting to wear his brand new pink raincoat.
Dams burst. Nostalgia surges forth from each of those gathered. Childhood tales are shared. 40 year olds become 3 year olds with memories sparkling in their eyes. Laughter ensues. Time flies.
The rains do have a way with coaxing nostalgia out from its slumber doesn’t it…?
Or is that this Season in Kerala with its blend of soothing winds, crooning raindrops and luxuriant green rejuvenates our hearts, awakening the child in us…?
The Monsoons have finally arrived! 🙂
