can you spot pigeons above the windows?
i've learnt from my growing up years in the rubber estate to read the language of nature. one of them is when there are swallows flying, circling the sky, means rain is coming.
back at our old house in the rubber estate, i'd spent hours watching these birds, even after a heavy downpour, they'd be swooping low in the field feeding on insects that emerges from underground after rain. i remember at times i'd stand right in the middle of the field and they'd fly by inches away, zigzagging so swiftly catching their prey, it was thrilling, it was... just where i was meant to be at that given moment. i do not know how else to explain the experience. i was in the "now-ness", back then.
i was happy to see these birds again. they brought me back to "now-ness".
