This never happened before, as it did Yesterday. Yesterday winter started, and the climate change started causing an effect on my mind. The hunger of different kind – the hunger to talk to someone, to communicate. It rarely ever came to me as this, but it was overwhelming. I was not interested in reading, writing, or watching movies or videos. But the only thing I had in my mind was to talk.

What do I want to talk about? I don’t know. It can be anything, an open topic. But on call and not on text. Text chatting sucks – it does not give us the feeling of being heard and connected, it makes us more frustrated when we want to hear someone’s voice, instead of replying in text.

Sometimes I get speechless – Yes I do. I am strong – I know. But at the same time even I carve for communication, for human touch. Maybe there are internal changes that takes places according to seasons, but winter has always bought clarity but at the same time, the realization of every passing moment – The aware.

I just felt like sharing – and that’s how I was feeling yesterday.
