Run Wild Child

The moose watched her lock her red door, walk across the little bridge then start running!

Nostalgic blue rodeo melodies and tunes, filled her ears, and started competing with the speed and pounding sound, of her running steps! All now playing to the drumming echos, of her pounding heart!

They all held hands and ran together! Until they all formed a rhythmic mass, unaware of the forest, the trees, the snow on the ground, the squirrels yelling their protesting screech and then deciding to just run the opposite way, just incase, this running creature, might decide to run vertically, climb up trees, and take over their cozy nests!

‘Is she another imposter!? Is she another desperate soul, living in her head, while running the snowy trails, to feel…a little…alive?!’ The moose scratched his beard! He has seen so manny running, walking, fleeing, chasing.. creatures, throughout this snowy forest! And he’s sure he’s seen her before.

‘There’s so much out there…there’s so much to experience’…The moose finally tuned in, to her thoughts among the loud tunes, as he watched her run! Run away from her old skin. Her daily rituals, shackled to her ankles, running along with her! He lifted up one hoof, like an index finger…gesturing! He wanted to tell her ‘hey…I think, it’s best to leave all those shackles behind! And just run free for the next hour!’. But she’s not one known to listen! So the moose lowered his raised hoof back down! And sighed.

‘One day, she’ll either settle down! Or lose herself to the intoxicating freedom of this forest…and never come back! But at least, she’s always…smiling’

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!
