During a trip I received a fax from my secretary.
“One glass brick was missing for the kitchen’s reform,” she wrote. “I am sending you the original project and what the mason will be doing in order to compensate the fault.”
On one side, there was the project my wife had designed: harmonious rows with an opening for ventilation.
On the other side, the project that solved the lack of the brick: a true jigsaw puzzle, where the glass squares were placed with no aesthetics whatsoever.
“Just buy the missing brick,” wrote my wife.
That was done and the original design was maintained. On that afternoon I kept thinking for a long time about it: how many times, because of a simple missing brick, we completely distort the original project of our lives!
