If I lay here, if I just lay here, would you lie with me and just forget the world?

Have you any idea how difficult it is to shave your legs while balancing on on leg, and with a plastic bag tied around your other foot? Bloody difficult, let me tell you.

I am stepping out of my house for the first time today, in thirteen days. Feeling almost shy at the thought of company other than that of my parents. I've grown a little accustomed to this isolation, this solitude. And filling my days doing nothing doesn't seem so difficult anymore.

Winter's in the air already - I can feel it, cold and dry, around me, in me.

I've been thinking, about myself, about winter, about loneliness.

Happy Diwali, all. Have yourselves a great weekend.
