She was sitting and doing nothing. The usual was happening. She wasn’t working and her mind wasn’t stopping.
Oh! All the noise around her irked her. Still, she kept still. In her mind, a slide show was playing time and again.
Images after images; her friends, her family, her dog, the food she loved and her favourite white dress that was still in the shop and the green lawn.
She didn’t stop the slide show, maybe there was a switch to it or maybe not.
This happened with her a lot and so she didn’t bother about it anymore. At that moment, her mind got overpowered by an image and she observed it.
The image showed a pond with many dry leaves floating in it. Green colour was prominent; green trees, green sky, green earth and green water.
Finally, she was with her mind. She touched the green water and saw the ripples with love in her eyes. When the ripples disappeared, she saw her face in the green water.
Without wasting much time she immersed herself in the water. It was soothing. She saw a sea of pink flowers and tried to get hold of one.
In less than a second she was in that sea of pink flowers. She wasn’t swimming, but the pink flowers were taking her along. She accepted them.
What seemed like infinity to her passed and she saw a white light coming through the pink flowers. The sea of pink flowers started disappearing while she stared at the white light.
She had to swim herself now. She was slow as the white light faded away and she couldn’t reach it. She was swimming on the same spot in an ocean of black space.
She felt as if she was dangling there when suddenly a strong thud woke her up.
Same seat, same table and some more files welcomed her back. She looked around and saw that no one had noticed her.
Life was the same.
