#SoCS June 29/19


Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “for/fore/four.” Use one, use ’em all, use ’em any way you want. Enjoy!

Weather changes, climate changes and all sorts of changes are happening in this world. Many are for the better and so many more for the worse. I live near the west coast of south India. The south-west monsoon usually begins in the first week of June and continues till the end of September but we continue to get occasional rains till end of November. Last year the rains started on time and continued raining till September and stopped completely. The result of that was water scarcity this year.

This year the rains did not begin in the first week. We were waiting for the rains and they did not come and when they did come it was as if they had come reluctantly. June is almost over and we are still waiting for the rains. Of the four months of our monsoon season the first is almost over. We should be feeling the rain  instead of seeing the sun. I wonder what will happen next year. The sun is in the forefront instead of the rains. We keep telling each other the rains will come. But at the same time there is this uneasy and anxious feeling because nothing is in our hands. We have to wait and pray that our waiting will not be in vain.

I am a person who believes there is not enough darkness in the world to extinguish the light of a small candle. We live in a small place in South India. I love reading, blogging, stitching, traveling, photography, listening to people and many other things which make life so very nice and interesting. Blogging is a fun experience, it has brought me into contact with people in different parts of the world and it is good to read about their everyday life. In spite of the differences there is a sameness which is fascinating. I have learnt and am learning something everyday. I have learnt to write haikus. I enjoy combining the thought and the number of syllables. I have always read books and I was happy to write short fiction. I had thought I would not be able to do so. Stream of Consciousness and photo challenges are fun too. Yes, there is so much in life that is sad and that hurts us. Many a time I wonder why life is so unfair to so many. We all have problems in life but the problems of many seems unbearable. This makes me feel so helpless. It is not possible to help everyone but we can do our bit, we can do something to help some in whatever way we can. Due to the pandemic I could not go to the Home for the mentally challenged for two years. I had been going there since 2011. I have started going again. I was happy that some members remembered me :) All of them are an important part of my life. There have been many challenges in life and we have faced them with a positive approach. Our grandson and granddaughter have made our lives richer.
