Life is full of the expected and unexpected.
Like how unexpected it was that my registrar shared something so personal with me and it made me feel so great.
But then expecting a friend who has known me for years to understand my feelings, only to have that thrown in my face.
But then the same friend saying something I was absolutely not expecting and which continued to haunt me all day.
All the surgical house officers anxious and expecting the worst for tomorrow on the first day of general surgery.
Sometimes it all becomes too much.
I had to disappear. And reflect. And take photos.
Expectations are on the whole not a good thing. But having the unexpected happen to you isn’t always a good thing either. Being blind-sided is a weird feeling.
But I can always expect the aesthetics of nature to take some of the edge off.
