Draw on the tablecloth!
I went to a surprise 50th birthday last night, and the brother-in-law turned up at our table in a bright green wig holding a pen. He was signing all the tables “happy birthday” and was an eccentric soul. Then he gave the pen to my mother.
“Give it a go!”
“No, I couldn’t,” my mother said.
“How about you? Go on!”
He placed the pen in front of me.
“You’ve got to live dangerously. Open up to the world a little.”
And with that, he darted off, leaving the pen right there in front of me.
So, I started to draw. This style of drawing is something I love doing but haven’t done in a long time. After a while, everyone at my table was commenting on it (which I find very uncomfortable) and when I got up to leave, someone suggested I sign it.
So I did. There were laughs and we pulled our jackets on and wandered out the function room.
Now I think, is it in the bin? Did somebody take it? I guess I’ll never know.
I love it when things like this happen in life.
I’m currently reading Practical Miracles for Mars & Venus by John Gray. He is the same author who wrote Men are from Mars, Woman are from Venus which I’ve never read, however this book stood out like a sore thumb in the library. (My god, how I’ve missed the library!)
As far as I can’t tell it’s about believing you have more control over life – living as if you were going to die type thinking, except far more expertly explained. I look forward to curling up by the fire and reading.
All good things to you.
