FADED MOOD

"You're thinking of something, my dear,
 and that makes you forget to talk." - Lewis Carroll



One of the most twisted sensations a person can experience is the feeling of returning home after a long holiday, back to a safe comfortable routine of everyday living. The emotions felt are relief, joy and satisfaction all in the midst of nostalgia, emptiness and slight bitterness: 'I want to return'.  

And so for these three short weeks, returning from my brief travel overseas to China and Taiwan, I have been thrown back into work mode and the usual routine of life. With studies yet to begin in the end of February and piano lessons around the same time, it's not that bad yet, but I have found myself just too lazy to leave home. Currently I'm just blaming it on my post-excessive traveling.  I'm self-diagnosing it as 'faded mood', symptoms are often likened to introversion.


Coming home to Australia to re-energise for a little bit is definitely a good thing. Not only to re-energise the mind and body, but also my pocket, for more traveling in the future, before studies take hold and the flow of funds get cut. Plus what is there to complain about when another holiday is set for early February, which is in exactly one week.


Now changing the topic and addressing something more apparent, I have returned home with more than a lighter mind, but also lighter hair. This was a change that took my hairstylists nine hours of hard work. Gone are my darker roots, a nice change for a warmer season where hair gets lighter, skin gets darker, and water gets warmer (and drinks get cooler). Perfect for my island getaway.

Traveling opens the mind and broadens one's perspective. I always find myself returning home feeling different. Change is always good, even if it is simply physical, because even physical change can trigger a change in the mind, where fresher ideas will come. And I promise you, fresh ideas will come.
