We can feel annoyed, displeased. We can fight reality, and weaken along useless battles against fate. We can get upset about the circumstances, and grumble and complain. We can embitter the mood of those who are around us, but this won´t change things a bit
Or we can deal with them, accept when possible, enjoy as much as one can. We can even see the appeal of this new situation and take advantage of the opportunity that comes our way
We can take a step back, forget expectations, look at the whole situation with new eyes, and capture it in all its splendor:
the hard shadows, the soft tummy, the not very clean windows, the precarious balance of the cup, the notebook which shouldn´t be visible, the careless posture, the atmosphere of a simple day, the evidence of the unforeseeable nature of events...
That´s what I did, friends, I stepped back and took pleasure in the fanciful (though wise) way that life unfolds. I stepped back and revelled in this glimpse of the rear of my life, the place where magic happens
