So since Sunday, I’ve been quiet.

Spouse came home yesterday to a quiet house for a change.

See, the poor man, usually enters his secluded home in a middle of a forest, to the loud noise of..music! Which I immediately turn down, out of respect for his mood.

But, I do keep my music playing, usually, until the very last minute, when I have to turn it waaaaay down.

Yesterday?! He came in to the loud snoring noise of…no other than, our old chocolate Labrador. That was it!

When people suddenly die, I always seem to …just stop…and I just get..quiet. I just sit and think…how? Why? Why do people die suddenly like that?! How does this make any sense? Who has decided this needs to happen?! Why now at this very moment???!! Why do those who are related, have to suffer such loss?! Why?! Why?! And the whys just keep growing and growing…

Kobe Bryant died on Sunday. And I’m not even…a Lakers fan.

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!

  1. I was never a Kobe fan when he played but I admired him after he retired. I liked how he handled life. I always saw him with his wife and daughters. His death reminded me how fast it can end. One day you’re off to coach your daughters basketball team and in an instant it’s all over.

    1. I feel the same about him. I was never a fan! But one can’t help but admire his dedication to his family!

      Yes. ‘How fast it can end’ is the jarring reality! One never knows!
