I noticed the vast expanse of green outside the study window..
The gurudwara on one side..
And a train station on another.
Concrete everywhere my eyes could see, and green hills and mint fresh clouds beyond. A contrast that I had only experienced in Bombay before. It was all there – everything that I need to make a life here – some green, some breeze, some “outside”, some concrete, some faith. Eagles crooned, very aptly, Peaceful, Easy Feeling (how is that for coincidence?) on the speakers and yet, I could hear the birds chirp, and in that moment, with a song in my heart and some wide eyed wonder, I realized I was happy. And I was home. Already!
