A couple of weeks ago, heading towards uni on a regular day, I was walking from Central station, along the underground tunnel when I was interrupted by a great smile and an adorable lady. Her name was Natasha. Regardless of the reason, which was for a good cause, I couldn't resist ignoring the lovely personality and her way of communication. A lot of thoughts were bombarding my mind... I fell for her... maybe she was too beautiful and charming... maybe I was too emotionally vulnerable during that period... thinking about her and how she made my day...

Today... on the same track... By chance, Natasha was heading towards me... when I was flabbergasted with her appearance, and instantly called her name and greeted her with a big smile... Yes... I never forgot her name... And it was my turn to lead the conversation, or try to, for a change, and engaged with a small conversation that would eventually end with a smile and a "have a good day"... without any further comment. Dopey... .

Feelings of happiness and regrets...

She made my day... again... and I was... again

  1. there's something extraordinary about you.. not that you have feelings and emotions.. no!.. because i believe that all humans do.. all men do.. but what is extraordinary about you.. is that when you feel, you are aware of it (something very few people i know have.. fortunately i do.. and that makes it a little difficult to communicate with people who don't.. it would be more like "paroles de sourds!!" whenever we do..)
    not only you are aware of your feelings, but also you write them down, and it takes a lot of courage do share them with people.. rarely have i met men who do.. :)
    wish all people were that self aware and transparent..
