Simple Observations: The best swing in the world

Distracted by a childish giggle my eyes followed the source. I see a female playing with her child under the shade of a tree, next to a huge pile of Coarse sand; looks like she is a construction worker assisting her husband with his work.

She had built a swing using some ropes, on a low hanging branch of the tree;  and the child was holding the swing ropes tightly with his small muddy hands very happily.

The women pulled the swing towards her body and released it to gain some momentum and child laughed and giggled harder.

She returns to her husband who is preparing a concrete mixture with the shovel and they looked at each other with gleaming smiles, like in one of those proud parent moments;  absorbing happiness of their child on a not so fancy but, the best swing in the world!


Messily ever after

Most of our lives fall in a fluid gray area, which can not be classified in neat tidy categories like Happiness and Unhappiness.

This gray area witness flash moments of happiness followed by stretches of despair and some unusual beautiful coexistence of both; Repeated and randomized to look like a complex uncertain mess!

But that’s OK. Isn’t it?

Because there is a beauty in this messiness, unpredictability and the coexistence of Happy-Unhappy paradoxes, which life throws at us so that we can live Messily ever after 🙂
