New Friends On The Block


When was the last time you felt really, truly lonely?

My husband is camping in deserts, elder son stays in hostel and younger one busy in writing his exams……that doesn’t mean I feel alone. Loneliness is a state of mind. I never feel alone especially since I have started blogging. What wonderful friends I have made here ! I love communicating with them. Their posts are so full of life, their words gives hope and soothing music relaxes my soul.

I haven’t met them even once but looking at their photos I feel as if I have known them for years. I like to meet their family members too, where husbands, daughters, sons, grand children, dogs, felines all make a lovely world whom I miss if I’m off blogging due to personal commitments. I wish to visit and chat with them for long hours. One of them is a big foodie !!!

The other day I was just sitting in my garden and watching these squirrels play. They are my new friends who have just joined the old ones like pea-cock, bat, red-wattled lapwing ( already been introduced before) in my garden.

They both run from pillar to post all day long, look so busy always climbing up and down the trees, across the hedges and walls. They both look similar having slender bodies with bushy tails and big eyes, have sturdy paws for grasping and climbing.

I love to see them feeding on grains I scatter for them in the morning. They keep on eating happily, once contented both of them start playing again as if they want to catch each other.

Having both of them around along with my flowers and butterflies I never feel alone but yes I confess that there are days when I miss my parents and other family members. Due to my husband’s job we can’t stay with them permanently, at times cut off from the relatives but that’s the way life is. It goes on……

  1. Well said about lonely and being alone. My husband and had commute marriage for five years, due to my job relocation, and I did not want to give up my career, so I had experienced being alone… What a beautiful garden you have. 🙂

  2. I love your squirrels. They look like a cross between chipmunks and squirrels with their stripes and busy tails. I don’t always like what I see on the Internet, but I can’t imagine life without it. It has become such an important part of our world. I would never know YOU without it 🙂

      1. Yeah true! I have always felt that with time one learns to enjoy these moments of solitude. In our way of life they are as much a part of who we are.
