I usually don’t sketch. The reason is simple: people HAVE eyes!
Jokes apart, yesterday I sat down with a blank piece of paper to sketch my own symbolic impression of Life. To begin with I drew a straight line. Then I drew a sinusoidal line. Next, was a trough. Followed by a crest. Then a line with only crests. Again, a line with only troughs. After which the bell rang.
It was my neighbour. I chatted with him for some time while his seven year old son kept hopping all around the flat. When they left I went back to the sketch where, to my surprise, I found a big circle drawn which included the straight line, the sinusoidal line, the trough, the crest and the lines with crests and troughs respectively.
PS: I smiled.
