I've been away yet again. Out of all the months this year I think December has been the busiest. Holidays, work, travelling - it all (even a thought about everything) turned me into a complete ghost. When I met my friend for a Sunday brunch a couple of weeks ago, she told me that I look extremely tired despite my efforts to be smiley and bubbly. The truth is, I slept at least 8 hours that night but I suppose it's one of those tired that you can't sleep off. I am somewhat better now, just taking one day at a time. And I'm sure a lot of people feel the same way in December. These photos my friend took of me that gloomy Sunday afternoon, are quite different from anything I've shared on the blog but I really like them. They represent accurately how I felt in that moment - tired, exhausted surrounded by a never-ending buzz of the city echoes.
