Letters of Life

Wonder

Being at the receiving end of a surprise party, even if it’s just a small dinner party, even if it came a little too early, must be fun.

But planning one, executing the sequence of events, visualising the end result, the buildup, the suspense of the pending approach, and then — SURPRISE!

After that, seeing the look of amazement on the receiver, the sustained sense of wonder emanating forth, I think those make it all worthwhile.

This is a small and lovely thing: The suddenness, the astonishment, the unexpected, all these make the memory worth reliving, not just for the recipient, but for everyone else around.

Life can be surprisingly good.
