in between the sheets
As of 2016, I told myself that I would loosen the strings and let myself enjoy this thing that is life
a bit. I went to bed after reading my three words and ‘spontaneous’ stuck with me. As the rain tapped
on the window and the heating engulfed the room, I was in a deep slumber. Waking up, the sun was shining
and it was a cloudless day in London, one that is so rare. I fixed myself a cup of mint tea (I’ve given
up caffeine and more on that soon) and started preparing healthy pancakes. My wellbeing and health is
something I’m looking after this year and I’ve taken it full on even in the toughest of moments
where I want to lose myself to the work that is piling up around me.
The methodical notions of preparing brunch is ever so different than preparing breakfast on a normal
weekday, I feel. It has that feeling of serenity. The flour hits the bowl with a light puff of cloud,
the sound of cracking an egg, the whisk against the bowl. The sun crept ever so closer to the center
of the kitchen and it was precisely at that moment, when the warmth rode up my leg, I decided to cancel
all my plans of resting and preparing for the week ahead and to take advantage of the sun.
