First Thing

Daily Prompt: Back to Life
After an especially long and exhausting drive or flight, a grueling week at work, or a mind numbing exam period — what’s the one thing you do to feel human again?


First thing first: I empty my travel bags. Put everything in its place. The excitement of traveling is no longer there, so it becomes an unpleasant chore. Who is to do it? I have to, otherwise everything remains under my feet, and I feel claustrophobic.

If I have brought any presents I gave them straight away. A load gets off my mind.

Then I have a quick wash. If it’s prayer time, I get done with it.

Finally I relax lying on my bed. Oh! The stretching of one’s limbs is an untold luxury. Believe me it’s heavenly, after sitting cooped up on a flight, or a long journey by road.
