Life is like a jigsaw

I think life is a bit like a jigsaw. When we are born, we are given all the pieces of our life. But all the pieces are mixed up and you must piece them together as you go. And just as in the making of a real jigsaw everyone will do it differently. Some will start with all the edges, some just start piecing bits together in patches, others will just start at one point and build outwards. Unlike board games jigsaws don’t come with rules or instructions. There is no one to say how you should put one together, and there is no one who can say one way is the right way. We will all have our opinions as to which is the best way, but I have never ever heard anyone discussing how to put one together. My jigsaw is one of the big complicated ones, with bits that just don’t look like they will ever fit together, but I keep on persevering, piecing bits together and hoping one day to connect them all in the right way.

Well yesterday I must have been tired, I thought I had posted my page on Instagram, it was quite an important one as I came to the end of one of the little books. However, I hadn’t posted it so I have had to post both yesterday and todays pages today. So here are the last three days to catch up with . Both yesterday and todays are quite influenced by some books I am reading to help with my Loss and Memories work. Not sure about Tuesdays work, I had been looking at maps and so its got its roots based on those.
