One way to write a post every day for the month would be to tell you about something in my life that I’m glad of—but no, that would be lazy and I won’t do that. Not every day.
But one thing I’m thankful for lately is the weather. My loathing of hot weather is well-documented, so right now is when I’m happiest in Pune: it’s cool and breezy and often drizzles. There’s a heavier rain too, at times, but this season at least, it’s never lasted very long.
This morning, the sun was out and it was almost warm. I stood out on the balcony and thought, “it doesn’t look like it will rain anytime soon.” I went in to shower and get dressed for office and came back out to the balcony to hang out my towel. It was drizzling. By the time I gathered my bag, the rain was pouring down.
I went down and drove the car out of the basement, and by the time I was out of the gate, the rain had stopped completely. I have just a five-minute drive, and as I was halfway through it, it was drizzling again.
I love this beautiful, rapidly-changing better. I would have loved it less (far less!) if I had to go all the way across town as I did not so long ago. But now whether I’m coming to office or working from home and taking a cup of chai out to the balcony for a break, this weather seems like it’s my friend.
What’s the weather like right now where you are?
