8B Steadtler Pencil on 42x60cm Paper
You see the cat mesmerised by the colourful butterfly… its colours, its flutter, its shape, its dance in air… and the cat just watches it in awe… and soon its desire to possess it gets the better of him and the cat starts jumping to reach it, clawing to hold it, agitated when it fails a few times… but then, when it finally succeeds, all it has it just the body of the butterfly… not its colours – for they are crushed and crumpled… and no fluttering either, nor the dreamy dance….
Sometimes, a beautiful piece of dream is best left untouched... best viewed from a distance... best when they are left to float and dance on their own... because, we love them, we work hard for them, we long for them more... and we live in the happy state of joy, as long as the dream has a life of its own... almost like reality... but certainly not real… for, happiness to be in reality is best kept alive and sensed as an illusion.
How we wish some dreams come true... how we wish all things beautiful to our eyes be in our hands... how we wish we could hold the most beautiful moment for the rest of our life. But, would it last... would it give the same pleasure if we had it all the time... would it stay the same for years on... or, would it be the commencement of being stale and ordinary the moment you had it in reality!
So… keep on dreaming my friends, love and live in your dreams, and find dreams in your reality to live the illusion called happiness… HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
