I would like to present a painting of Belgian artist Erik Pevernagie, who lives and works in Brussels:
This painting "Paper boats for ever" represents a young lady lying back , dreaming away with paper boats in her mind.
The artist is a good watcher of our society.
He points out that some details in one's life can be highly important for one's further existence.
Those details, which might look insignificant, can appear to be vital leitmotifs in a person's life.
They may have the value of "Rosebuds" of Citizen Kane
or "Madeleine cookies" of French author, Marcel Proust
or "Strawberry fields" of the Beatles.
People regularly walk down the memory lane of their early youth.
The paper boats of their childhood are recurrently floating on the waves of their
mind and bring back the mood and the spirit of the early days.
They enable us to retreat from the trivial, daily worries
and can generate delightful bliss and true joy
in a sometimes frantic and chaotic life.
Cherishing the sweet reminiscence of the early hours of life
can be experienced as real enchantment:
Those hours when fantasy is given wings and
imagination allows us to sail with our paper boats
through the stern roads of our constricted life.
