What I Enjoy
I enjoy listening to my customers. I see the spark in their eyes as they discuss their dreams, the blush on their cheeks when they talk about their odd colour choices.
In between their (endless) lists of requirements I find out about Bobby’s favourite aunt, Jas’s frustration with her husband, and how long Hazel has been waiting for this baby.
I enjoy these nuggets of human emotions, the connection between me and a stranger. And I get to work with all their life in my soul; I’m an event organizer, you see. And as I weave and bind a thousand golden flowers around the aisle pillars, I fret – will Liana like them? Do they look exactly like the old, worn wedding photograph of her parents?
Humans And Their Complexities
My day is a collection of snippets, of memories, of moments in which I was part of a stranger’s life. At every event I organize and attend, I enjoy humans and their complexities. The most memorable of all, however, was Julian.
He had the brightest eyes of them all, the most exhaustive collection of party ideas. His parents had allocated a great budget for his party, and all his wishes were to be fulfilled, they said. Heads were nodded, hands were shaken. And so I hosted the biggest, grandest, most beautiful party of my career: water slides, circus performances and chocolate fountains.
Is life not all about the little pleasures and the big pleasures and the ordinary pleasures in between? I printed the invitation envelopes, because they all had the same address – SOS Children’s Orphanage.
