“Life is short….

Let’s face it – Life is short. While I was in this “philosophical” mood and conversation with my friend and colleague (Please note the ‘double-quotes’ there!) on the eve of her birthday, the final word to come out of it was that – Life is short. We also decided we may as well get a taste of it, especially for the few years we have left in our 20s.

So, when it was time to make her birthday card – I decided to quote one of her favourite authors/playwright/philosopher extraordnaire Johann Wolfgang von Goethe. {Incidentally, AW is German so she had the privilege of studying Goethe’s works in his own language, and speaks in high regard of all his philosophy and literature.}

Having spent an evening using paint, some crayons, glue and felt pens after nearly a year … this is what came about….

But it actually the quote itself which embodies the entire experience , of creating something that resembles art, that it has now become one of my favourites !
