Tag Archives: rejuvenated


My late husband used to enjoy watching Wrestling Championships. Keeping upto date with news was his first interest, starting with the news at 6pm, onwards to 9pm on the local tv. Between the news was the wrestling mania. He would relish the moves the wrestlers took, cheering, and enjoying whatever they did. I disliked the champions hitting each other mercilessly. 

Sometimes it looked a bit fake to me. One wrestler would be getting beaten, and suddenly he would get rejuvenated to beat the daylights from the other one.

I couldn’t take that much wrestling coupled with the news. Everyday there were bombs killing people, and news was all about death, and the drones killing, and blasting houses in the border areas. Life had become a big horror. I would escape from the lounge to watch light drama on the tv we had in the kitchen.

It had always been my mantra to keep myself occupied in work, or reading books with happy endings, or some project, or the other to stay happy. I can’t take bad news, so I hardly watch news. Why make myself unhappy? Downside is I never know the latest news.

A Memo to Myself

It’s hard to feel rejuvenated when you are bitten by a bug, the area becomes red and itchy, and you hope it won’t detoriate further into something else. I am looking with trepidation at my left hand and left foot, asking myself why did I go outside?

I went outside to get a photo of roses. There were so many dried ones still hanging on. I went inside to get a bag and scissors. Operation de heading began. I went on snipping and cutting removing unsightly leaves too.

The bugs in retaliation bit me. The bitten finger on my left foot has turned red. My left hand has been bitten too.

Memo to myself: Next time don’t go out in slippers. Wear socks and shoes for stepping in grass and going near plants. Don’t forget to wear gloves.

The Young and the Rested

When was the last time you felt truly rejuvenated and energized? What made you feel that way?
