Storm before the calm

A hundred things rush through my mind as I drive back from the airport. I have three different to-do lists in various stages of completion. The adrenalin rush is palpable. Rush through the customer service desk returning items I do not need. Even I receive the receipt back my mind is already on the next task. I feel like I am in the middle of some hurricane with absolutely no control on what happens next. I reach home dog tired. Even as I take stock of the stuff left to do, my mind and body are weary. I make a decision I will regret. I go to bed instead.

I feel like someone is drilling something into my head. Its only the beep beep from the alarm. It can’t be morning already! The next few hours are gone even before I can take a minute to relax. Back to the grind at work.

Hours feel like minutes. It is time to finally leave. Stuck in traffic, anxiety pounds at my heart. As we make past the bumper to bumper traffic my mind eases. The looming building makes my already loud heartbeats louder. Another hour later sitting in the lounge I finally relax. I look back on the past day and wonder if the storm is over…

  1. Safe journey, Laksh. I am sure you will have a blast, a storm of a holiday awaiting, you will have a fab time I am sure ๐Ÿ™‚ Take care.

  2. Blog hopping brought me to your blog. You have such an endearing writing style. I read many of your archives until my eyes swam.
    I purposely did not give out my regular email, in case you guessed who I was. I know you from Wipro around the yr 1998. I have always seen you with Akila aka Akay here. We stayed in the same ‘CEMA’ for a while. We also worked on the same floor on diagonally opposite ends in Bommanahalli. I particularly remember one incident with an autowallah when you, me and Akila went to watch a movie in jayanagar.
    Remember me yet ???
    send an email to the above address if you do. It is valid!
