Cee’s Share Your World
If you were to pack a basket for picnic lunch, what would be in your basket?
Nothing. I would just buy stuff along the way. I am sick and and tired of packing food for travel. If I had to pack another basket of idly at 4 AM for travel, I’d scream.
There is a plan to take my father to a hill-temple in a couple of days, because it has been his long time desire — said temple being our “clan deity”. I’ve been putting it off for decades because I don’t travel well, and traveling up and down a hill is nothing short of torture to me. But lately I’ve been feeling that as he ages, it would become more difficult and if I am unable to take him to the temple before he exits the world, I might regret it. I am not excited at the prospect of car travel; the very thought makes me nauseous. But I feel that this is something I ought to get done with before it is too late.
The connection to the question is that I told my dad that he can forget about me packing food for the trip. Either we eat enroute, or we starve until we return.
On a vacation what you would require in any place that you sleep?
A clean floor/blanket/pillow, mosquito-free room, clean toilet with running water and adequate ventilation and breeze. I also need a bottle of water. It would be nice if the surroundings were silent and dark. And private – I am not an elegant sleeper and I’d rather not be conscious of alien eyes on me.
If you were to buy a new house/apartment what is the top three items on your wish list?
Adequate natural light, adequate natural ventilation and a garden that would thrive despite my black thumb. The first two I have in my current house, and the third is not possible in this world.
