Our duty to life is to save our dreams, says the great dreamer and artist Amedeo Modigliani.
When I was still wearing the wings of a flight to the adult world, Amedeo’s childhood, his relationship with his mother, his mystical paintings and sculptures, his thoughts, his brief but stormy life, and his tragic love with Jeanne Hebuterne taught me to dream – without fears and to the future, even if then it seemed unrealistic, fragile, unworkable, forbidden, dangerous, etc.
But dreaming alone is not enough. Those dreams need to be protected from the crosswinds of routine, cherished, guarded, so as not to fade away, become exhausted, and fall into the drawers of oblivion or failure.
And, finally, they must be implemented, not delayed, unbelittled. Otherwise, it would mean I did not learn Amedeo’s lesson, nor I did obey his advice to save my dreams
Posting this photo for reflections’ challenge, I got a mind how it was great if our dreams could reflect as any item, then we would not forget them…
