A visitor in my livingroom

Sometimes, I find it very enlightening to play a little game with myself. I call it: “Being on a visit with myself”. Because if I am too busy with my everyday hassle, my work and tons of requests from other people, then I very often come to a point where I feel being far, so far away from myself. I remember this kind, dark-haired lady I meet in the mirror of my bathroom every morning only very nebulous, similar to a distant acquaintance I didn’t see for a long time.
And then I know it is time to have a closer look at this distant lady. I have to check if she’s well and I am going to visit her.

Today I visited her living room. – Oh well, … what for heaven’s sake is she doing with that big, huge, brown paperboard container in the middle of the living room? - Ah … this is her son’s birthday present. New bicycle tires.
And what does she plan with that long rolled carpet beside the huge box?
I see, … she wants to put it on the floor of her new basement studio but before to do so, she has to clean the floor. Next there is a very pretty illustrated calendar on her shelf in the living room showing a beautiful, breathtaking view of the Alps but the date shows still the 17 September.
Well sometimes it would be nice if time could stop for a few days.

And what’s that? A bottle with blue anti-freeze in it? Who put it on the middle of the table? – Well I see, the lady is apparently expecting the first frost very soon and she has to prepare her car.
But look here! Look at this cute little hedgehog beside the flower vase close to the pumpkin on the lady’s living room table.
Is it perhaps another visitor who would like to know how I feel today
