Finding Peace Among Migrating Woes
Feeling like a Salmon these days…
No!!! I am not into swimming or anything like that…
You are reading the blog of a zoologist, so expect some animal things here 😜😜
Well, as many of you know, Salmon is a fish which migrates…from sea to river, and then back.
It’s not a continuous journey:; it spends years at every home, adjusting to a new environment, undergoing numerous physiological and behavioural changes, All the time fighting for it’s life. Tell you the truth, her life is a continuous struggle.
Born in the hills, having fair skin, plenty Blood cells, lean body, and cool mind…one day I migrated to plains…where it’s hard to stay cool for many reasons.My body lost tons of fluid, it was dusty, sweaty, and hot out there. My skin gathered some melanin as a sun guard, becoming dark, My hair lost sheen…but slowly I adapted to the environ.
And now that I am back to hills, THE TRANPORTATION SHOCK is visible. My skin asks to make up for those gallons of moisture lost; it’s damn dry here and when I try to nourish it over night, I feel like oil factory the next morning except my thirsty face which still asks for more!!!!
Before writing this…I was coming out of home…and as soon as I started walking…it felt like walking on grease and the moment I sat…the skin felt sand dry!!! What the hell!!!
Yeah, having little tough time…and to worsen the things, my under eye granules are making their appearance back!!! Last thing I remember hating…
So basically I am in trouble as far as my skin is concerned but last night I was on the terrace…the soft touch of the mountain breeze felt like compensating for all these troubles…I remembered the killing hot summer wind of plains…and immediately, I felt in peace with Nature. As I believe, Nature to be the best healer and I know it will find the balance…soon.
‘This’ is where my heart belongs to…and this is how it goes from here…so I better gather all possible tools cause it’s a cool but dry bumpy ride ahead….😊😊😊
