“Delicate Balance” Paintings by Magi Puig
My husband Ridley sends me a calendar invite for everything. Everything. Dental appointment? Calendar invite. Flight departure? Calendar invite. Flight change? New calendar invite. If I mention I’ll be stopping by Whole Foods on the way home from work to pick up dinner there is a good chance there will be a calendar invite.
For this reason, very little escapes the schedule. But last week we had a breach.
A planned dinner party with friends was locked down with a calendar invite about 6 weeks ago. But somehow in recent email exchanges between the guests the date was confirmed for Thursday, June 27. I figured I had made a mistake and zeroed in on the date rather than the day of the week. Naturally, I corrected the event to Wednesday, June 27 on the calendar.
Table set, flowers arranged, food prepared – 24 hours early. When no one arrived and we realized what had happened, I was gently reminded to stay in my lane with regards to the calendar. Rest assured, there was a new calendar invite for the next night and the party’s dress rehearsal made it all the more fun.
Sometimes we are just holding on by a thread, and many of Magi Puig’s paintings reflect the tension. Brilliant.
