About Extremes


Hydrange-as Sizzle in the Morning Sun!

The days are either scorching hot, or wet and chilly after a thunderstorm -- a bit like my life at present. I'm either inundated with work or coasting along vacantly. It tends to be like that when you work freelance, and from home, I guess. The tea garden word for the temporary worker who's employed now and then, is ‘Bigha'. So here I am, tasting life as a Bigha for the first time, and teetering between an existence as a jobless blogger and a blog-less jobber.

Anything I say after those comments will be sycophancy!
The weather sounds so delightful - I would give anything to stand in a shower - the non-bathroom variety- right now

Thank you, Parvati, Kamini, and Raji. It's been ALL scorch - and joblessness - since I posted this!
