The Prelude to a Siesta


It was a hot summer afternoon. After a heavy lunch consisting of mountains of rice, along with delicious curries, pickles, and curd, the serotonin was too much to handle. Sleep was inevitable. The cool ceramic tiled floor and a colorful straw mat suddenly looked very inviting. The ceiling fan above sent soothing gusts making the curtain across the balcony entrance wave gracefully, creating intermittent brightness and semi-darkness... this was same the day I took this snap

Yes lovely colors! I know hard heavy the heat can feel in Pune , India, studied yoga their under the great B.K.S. Iyengar! Namaste!Thanks for visiting my blog, you're correct we women do like Bad Boys. I think that's the charm of my favorite writer Neil Gaiman for he looks like a such a bad boy! Alas, he's a married man!
