Just Jot it prompt - "Self" by Ritu
Most of my blogfriends know that my mood depends very much on the weather and the light. If the sun is shining both selves in me are happy, if it rains or it is grey and cold and humid, both selves are very unhappy. I don't remember who had said that humans are the only creatures who can hold a conversation with themselves. There are two in us, one is the brain and the other the heart. The brain is more easy to manage then the heart ! If you fall in love with an impossible guy and your brain directed inner self says, stop it, the other doesn't agree, or it is very hard.
Yesterday was a day where my both selves were not very happy, it was cold, grey, very humid and just disgusting. I was looking for something to cheer me up ! And suddenly I thought, India is just around the corner a couple of streets further ! I'll go there !
And that's what I did, I went to the shop Mala India, which is not really a shop. It is presented like an Indian house.
There is a corner when you come in with a fountain and little chairs where you can have Indian tea. There is Indian music which is good to calm you down if you are agitated. Friendly ladies are chatting, people are reading it is very peaceful and all this beautiful furniture and Indian decorations around makes the place special and cosy.
You can walk from one room to the other and buy the exposed things, the furniture too
the windows and the carved wooden pannels
There is a "kitchen" with shelves where you find all possible Indian spices and rice and other food.
A room for fabric and lamps
Even a slide
Ribbons and buttons
and myself in a mirror
A long way leading to the bedroom
interrupted by a dining room
Entrance to the bed room
When you leave the bedroom
Plenty of Buddhas
and carved items
It's really very pleasant to sit down or make a little tour in this house. Sometimes I also buy something but this time I didn't.
