Sketch

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.

The most smile-bringing, thoughtful and metaphor-ous blog post I've ever read. This is why I like kids, they can solve toughest problems without with utmost cool attitude and this proves, answers to most difficult questions are often very simple! :) Dhaasu post Novo! :D

The most foolish thing in this world is to fall in love with someone without any reason. But the smartest thing, once you are in love,is to respect that fall for ever.
