‘Lighthouse’. It’s a song by ‘Patric Watson’.

What about this specific song? Well…this song always manages to awaken deep feelings buried within! Every single time I listen to it..I never know what feelings are going to surface!

Sometimes, it’s missing loved ones I haven’t seen for a while…I picture them listening to it too…The song brings back their facial features to mind! Their smile, their quiet ‘huggy’ gaze. The eyes, are half open, and are smiling…I loved to /and still do/ call them my favourite ‘smiling eyes’! They tell you a lot without any words actually spoken! They tell you this ‘You are wonderful! BUT..look at my friend leaning her head on mine! Isn’t she the most wonderful being you’ve ever seen/met?! I’m so lucky!’. Those favourite eyes of mine aren’t loud! Rather they’re very quiet! They make ‘you’ feel quiet inside too…They share the space with the most generous smile! My eyes keep bouncing back and forth between that gaze and that smile! The smile isn’t loud either! Generous, but not loud! It’s also quiet in the most wonderful way imagined!

That generous quiet smile, those quiet ‘huggy’ eyes are my ‘lighthouse’! My son.

I used to work as a graphic designer, until one day I was tragically and blissfully hit by two colliding meteors! One caused my falling in love with the world of coffee! And the other resulted in me falling out of love with the not so wonderful and nearly suffocating office culture! I left the glamour of the design world, and opened up my little café! Those were the best years of my life! I say ‘were’, because (wait! May be another time! But please do ask me if you ‘must’ know and can’t sleep tonight unless I tell you!) For the past three years, I have been living in a pyramid shape house in a middle of a green forest in the summer; a green forest buried underneath lots - I mean LOTS - of snow in the winter. I used to ‘think I still do ;)’ love the city! With its buzzing energy! I love to travel and seeing different food and coffee scenes...preferably alone! visiting ‘quirky and unusual’ places! I do not love visiting museums, hugely commercialized areas, malls and landmarks! I love old and full of heritage ‘anything’! I also love, to sit in a busy coffeeshop ‘reading quietly’ and not talking! Talking exhausts me most of the time! Watching the world unfold.. and thinking ...never does!
