Puzzles, whether physical or mental, have forever been and will always be one of humanity’s obsessions. We as
people are always looking to fix problems and innovate new things. So, it is no wonder that a puzzle sits invitingly
in the library, tucked into the corner beside the classics. We have gone through many puzzles ever since they have
been introduced one by one, and I am very thankful for it; they have filled many lunchtimes with things from
colourful cats to the glowing cities of Italy.
The last puzzle completed was left unfinished at the end of Term 4 last year, and was left abandoned as it had been before, at the start of Term 1 this year – it was too meticulous and every piece took too much effort – but the
little advancements added up to a victory. The scenery of glittering waters and crammed, multi-colour buildings was complete and there was a little celebration at the table.
I am looking forward to next term, when a new puzzle will be revealed, piled in a box on the table in the corner
of the library, beside the classics.
