Once upon a time there was a girl. She couldn't resist blueberries for breakfast and ice-cream for supper, she drank green tea out of huge mugs and spent evenings dreaming that tomorrow would be another day and it would bring positive changes. She loved the sound of lamenting raindrops on the windowsill and silence that always smelled of loneliness. Her favourite thing to do in the evening was to sit in front of the window with a glass of cheap wine that tasted just like her life and watch the world go by.
Here was a young man with a heavy case, where he probably kept half of his life and his ex-girlfriend's photograph. If he doesn't hurry up the bus will leave without him. The bus doesn't care that his actual girlfriend is waiting for him for dinner and will probably piss off very soon, will leave the food that she had cooked so lovingly untouched, will sit in front of the TV aimlessly switching from one stupid programme to another stupid programme, letting yet another hope for changes slip through the street-door. It starts raining. He will be late. The bus is leaving the moment he approaches the bus stop.
There is a man, closing his shop and saying goodbye to his mates - tired but cheerfully. She wonders where would he go? Probably home, where his wife and kids are waiting for him in the warm cosiness of their little house. Somewhere - not so near and not so far away - dogs start barking, alarm has set a goal to drive your ears mad, neighbours complain in the highest pitches how they can't have a calm evening at home with their feet up for once... People pass by thinking their thoughts, the rain keeps singing its mournful song...
The girl with the glass of sour wine in her hands that watched life, through her little window, as if it was the most interesting creation no script writer could think of, spent her evenings making up lives for passers by and dreamt that tomorrow would bring positive changes. There will be another day. And it no doubt will bring positive changes. One day... For now, work on your karma. And perhaps your karma will work on you.
