Everything is as it should be because I HAVE ALLOWED everything to happen in your world to enable everything to occur naturally as consequences of your actions and consequences of your consciousness. Be that as it may, everything has occurred as it should because I HAVE ALLOWED IT.
Yesterday evening, I stepped into our bedroom when…
Danielle: Mum, what’s the meaning of realism?
Me: Um…paintings that look so real they look like photographs?
Danielle: No. Not painting. Realist. What’s realist?
Me: Um…people who only see things as they are? As in what’s in front of them? Haiyah! Can look at the dictionary, can or not?
Danielle: Lazy lah…
Me: Hayoh! (I pick up my iPad) Realism – interest in or concern for the actual or real, as distinguished from the abstract, speculative, etc. Or in Literature – a theory of writing in which the ordinary, familiar, or mundane aspects of life are represented in a straightforward or matter-of-fact manner that is presumed to reflect life as it actually is. (I glance at her.)
Danielle: Oh okay. I understand.
Danielle: Nothing. (without looking up from her screen)
Me: Hayoh! See lah! I forgot what I came in here for!
I returned to the kitchen trying to remember why I went to the bedroom in the first place…Oh ya. To get my iPad…
Dear God in Heaven!
What. Have. I. Got. Myself. Into?
(You’re not doing it alone, child.)
I know. I just love drama.
