“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.

Classically busy life. Chop, chop, chop. 10 years from now, your autonomous vehicle will make the same mistake and pick you up for vacation a day early.
Classic story! And thank you for introducing me to the art work.
