Round is the shape of the sphere on which we exist, holding on for dear life. To hop off may just mean that we will be catapulted into vast and dark open spaces where shapes do not exist and then? How can we find our way back?
Round is the shape of a chocolate birthday cake, baked with love and eaten at the kitchen table surrounded by loved ones, on this special day. The yummy ingredients will no doubt affect the shape of the hips for a while, but what the heck … we only live this life once. We can just as well enjoy it.
Round is the shape of the wedding band, a circle of gold, given with love and accepted with pride, praying that this bond will survive. This talisman does not always do its job, but we can always hope. Or try again. No, scrap that.
Round is the shape of the full moon which we found so romantic in our youth until those astronauts landed their moon craft on it. It is still a wonderful sight to behold, but nowadays we study the wax and wane of the moon purely for scientific reasons.
Round is also the shape of the sun at the break of day which is greeted with enthusiasm or despair, depending on personal circumstances. But irrespective of how we feel about the new day, it signifies the fact that we are back in the arena for another round.
