I picked up my canvas, painted it a beautiful golden hue and brought out my mosaic pieces that had been locked away for way too long. I often find my paintings taking on an energy of their own as I progress and this piece of artwork was no less.
The mosaics started creating pathways, meandering towards each other to make those connections that I craved but could not make during the lockdown.
I had spread the mosaic pieces in front of me to easily pick out that perfectly shaped piece to fit into the path. But as I progressed, I found myself rejecting that ‘perfect’ piece, since it did not fit into the space I wanted it for. I found myself looking for that odd-shaped piece that was just perfect for that particular spot. Soon, I discovered that every single piece of mosaic, regardless of its imperfections found a place for itself. The small and the big, the curved piece and the crooked, the broad and the narrow one; each and every piece seemed to have a place carved out just perfect it.
That got me thinking. Isn’t that exactly how it is for my fellow human being? Each person has her own life path that is just perfect for her. What about mine?
