The unexpected visitor

Door — 03

I know, it is such a crime to even think about work at a place so romantic. Well, someone else saw me working, and probably thought the same. I could feel someone approaching. I looked up, and I was so… so... startled.

While my wife was taking a nap, I thought of secretly catching up with some work. Obviously, because I wouldn’t dare to tick her off on our anniversary honeymoon ;P

Sometimes, work can be like a leech — it latches on to you till you actually realise it is sucking the fun out of you and your life. Anyway…

I sat in the balcony. Such a view, orangish-pink sky and this mammoth of a waterfall facing me. The white noise of the gushing water, peculiar chirps of birds and my laptop. I know, it is such a crime to even think about work at a place so romantic. Well, someone else saw me working too, and probably thought the same.

I could feel someone approaching. I looked up, and I was so… so... startled. After all, not very often does a Sambar Deer pays you a visit. Nature has its own way of stealing attention. He stayed there for a while, grazing, occasionally peeking inside and looking at me. He was pretty successful in distracting me away from the fun-sucking machine. After some time, probably when he was bored of looking at my face, he quietly walked away.

Did I go back to my laptop? Yes, I had to. To shut it down. Trading this environment — this raw and pure nature — for work, that you’ll continue to do all your life, is probably not worth it.

Sometimes, I go back and wonder, “Did I miss something, by not looking up and responding to the calls of the weird chirps of those birds?”
