Reconciliation

I want to go out today. 

It’s a great day. An April day in Delhi when the weather is great. It was raining in the morning. 

It’s Good Friday today. School is shut, the children are home today. I can’t work (write, edit, Ochre Sky) when they are at home. 

I want to go out. It’s a perfect day to go out into the city. I want to wear a saree and go to the National Museum today. 

Sahar and Aliza are not interested. Their lack of interest is like a dead weight. I cannot lug it around with me. 

I am sad. I am writing to feel lighter. I want to go out. They want to stay at home. 

I will go out next week when they are at school. I shall be my own child. My own companion.
