I concentrate best late in the night, after everyone has gone to bed and it's dark and quiet. Now with the readings piling up for my classes, I've gone back to this habit of staying up late and reading. But the distractions don't seem to stop! :)
Last night as I sat reading at our dining table with a glass top, I noticed how well things were reflecting on the glass surface with the one overhead light, and had to bring out my camera!
This little pot-bellied terracotta Ganesha is one of my favourites because he's so pudgy and cute. Some selective color on Picasa made the pictures a little more interesting ...
A few nights ago, as I sat reading on the couch very late in the night, our schizophrenic cat Shadow decided to join me. He has his moods, so when he wants to cuddle, you feel privileged and oblige. :)
I ignored him for a while because he can get very demanding and I didn't want to get distracted. After a while he settled down with his head on my feet and fell asleep! He was so cute that I wanted to take a picture to show Raghav in the morning. But I couldn't get up to get my camera, so I ended up making rough sketches with my pen. It was really comforting to have his company as I studied.
It's hard to stay focused and not get distracted ... !
