Hello everyone. I thought I would muse on a common topic. Don’t we all love pleasant surprises😊? Recently Suchitra decided to surprise Shobha with a visit. Now Suchitra and Shobha have been friends from their teenage years. Even though they lost touch for many years after getting married, they reconnected.
Here I compare surprise visits to a style of loose painting. The reason is, for a loose painting style, even though I conceptualize what I wish to paint, it need not turn out that way!! Now, I did my painting of flowers in a free-flowing way. In addition, I used whatever colours that came to my mind. So, with Suchitra, she had a plan to visit Shobha, but she had no clue what would happen when she rang the doorbell. Will Shobha be at home or not? Or has she gone to see her parents in another town? I wonder if all these thoughts went through her mind. Was she prepared for a disappointment in case she was not at home?
When I began painting, I had a plan to draw flowers. But I had no picture to refer to, so I was not sure what it would finally turn out to look like in my painting. Some friends who saw this painting asked me what flowers did I paint. I am clueless. I am still pondering what they are? That is because it was imaginary, but it turned out to be a pleasant surprise as they did look nice when I had finished. Similarly, I think the visit turned out to be a lovely surprise for Shobha. I am sure they chatted as though there was no end to time😊.
In life, we plan and make decisions. However, not all decisions turn out well. Sometimes, like Suchitra, make a simple plan and let things unfold. Maybe the impact would be exhilarating😊. On that note, I wish our readers pleasant surprises in their lives😊😊.
