Jigsaw puzzles.

Monday: Dialogue, Lines, or Quotes

In an earlier post titled Art is Subjective I wrote, "... I find satisfaction in balancing to the penny; it means I did something exactly right. It's either right or it's wrong. No guessing. No whims."

And that's why a particular line in the movie Puzzle (2018) resonates with me as Robert (Irrfan Khan) explains his attraction to jigsaw puzzles...
...There's nothing we can do to control anything. But when you complete a puzzle, when you finish it, you know you have made all the right choices. No matter how many wrong pieces you tried to fit into a wrong place, but at the very end, everything makes one perfect picture.
I, too, love putting together jigsaw puzzles and now I have deeper understanding as to why. Similar to balancing the budget to the penny, it's another area where I can do something exactly right. No guessing. No whims. That's refreshing.
