2008 July 06 : Positive Peace

I have something that most people don’t have. I have a beautiful terrace. Not just an ordinary rooftop but a big 1000+ sq. ft. area surrounded my trees on almost all the sides.

Colourful flowers bloom on a couple of trees and a couple others bear fruits. Often I wake up to the sweet sound of birds chirping on these trees. Sometimes the cab guy wakes me up when I am late for work.

Things I enjoy doing on my terrace:

1. Star/moon/clouds/sky gazing in the night.

2. Reading/writing. Gives me the feeling that I am on a holiday and all I have to do is relax. The ideal time for this is in the evenings between 1645 and sunset.

3. Having a conversation on the phone. Only place in the noisy city where I can talk freely and not ask the person on the other end to repeat what they said.

4. Host friends on the terrace and yap about the above 3 benefits to them and let them experience it for themselves.

One of the chief reasons why I agreed to take up this house on rent, was the terrace and till this date I dont regret the decision.
