Looking at the blank page on the screen, to be soon filled up with my thoughts I have in my head.. I find myself all focused, “this one is going to be serious” I tell myself. After a couple of minutes a naughty thought crosses my mind..
Who am I kiddin’?.. I can’t write serious stuff.
Now, smiling with my tongue out, I begin typing, my fingers flirting ever so gently with the keys on the keyboard..its beginning to sound like music to my ears, a rhythm I am used to listening every time I have something to write about and find myself typing away, one key after the other. My mind is slowly drifting away from the real world and into a different one, the characters in my head are coming to life, the music is playing in the background, the sprinkling of rain drops and a strong breeze blowing across..
..and then I hear words from a distance, I can’t quite understand.. the words get clearer with every second and then very loud all of a sudden
“Close the windows, its raining” mom had been screaming for the past few seconds.
I was stunned! I knew I had to react.. I look up at her and then behind, I shut the window hurriedly. I come back and sit in front of my computer screen – the moment has clearly passed. The thoughts literally went down the drain along with the rain water.
I click on ‘save as draft’, hoping I can re-create that moment again sometime.
Apparently saving the bedroom from filling up with water was more important than my typing the blog post.
The story of my many incomplete posts, resting peacefully as notepad documents
