"fantasy lives in the mad heart's theatre and its dreams"
Soo~ this is my entry for *SenshiStock
's In Perspective Contest. [link]
I used this [link]
stock as reference.
The theme should be related to the perspective of myself, what drives me to be who i am etc.
pretty simple: The little things. I'm always trying to keep my inner child alive, because it's due to him that we can feel true happiness by enjoying the small things.
when you grow up it often happens that you can't see them anymore and the world might appear really trist and sad... ~
a little edit: I often feel that the world isn't fair (yeah that's put pretty simply) and actually i know that she isn't. people always set their goals so how believe that they only can be happy or enjoy life when they reach them, and they just ignore what beauty is around them, or that only stuff they buyed would fulfil their happiness. my family's small and we never had much money so i never understood these things. well, i thought if i would get a gameboy i would be sooo happy and i was sad when i was told that there was no money for it, but now i'm a grown-up, need to pay my own bills, and i understand why we could never affort such things.
so i keep track of the really simple things. they are the things that make me happy. for example the poppies: i think very few people understand why i love them so much, but it's so simple: just look at them: they're so weak that you're never going to be able to pick them up and bring them home, but still they're growing simple EVERYWHERE.
and then, the ocean. i love it. its endlessness. i really love sitting on the beach watching over the sea and see no fuckin end. it's awesome! i only saw it, like, five or six times in my life, two times when i was a little kid, but this view really means a lot to me. maybe because we've always been poor, maybe because i could never affort any vacations to other countries i don't know. i've never been swimming in the ocean, and that's really not what i need. i just need to look at it in a while. smell the breeze. hear the waves. it calms me.
and really, most of the times, when i see this little things, i am touched (nearly) to tears. because it's incredible, and awesome, and i am able to see this beauty of the little things...
