“Consider a small child sitting on his mother’s lap while she reads him a picture book. The picture book opens to a width that effectively places the child at the centre of a closed circle – that of mother’s body, arms, and the picture book… That circle, so private and intimate, is a place apart from the demands and stresses of daily life, a sanctuary in and from which the child can explore the many worlds offered in picture books. Despite all of our society’s technological advances, it still just takes one child, one book, and one reader, to create this unique space, to work this everyday magic.”
― Martha V. Parravano
From the mother’s womb, our journey of life starts. Growing up in mother’s arm and under the father’s caring eyes we slowly start to increase the radius of our activities, the radius grows touching our school, graduation, career and reaches the widest point when we set our life’s purpose. Our spirit drives us towards our goals and we constantly juggle around with health-care, exercise, relations, finances, work, family, responsibilities, protecting self-esteem and at the end all hormonal function mechanisms slow down, throwing us again towards the centre of the circle. We slide down along the radius, getting back to the childhood life, learning to control the gear of our wishes like food, clothes, adventures, travels and many more things. The limitations return back to push us into the cocoon of loneliness. And then the final call and the complete lull everywhere!! We become the point in the circle to begin with again, only the size of the radius may vary this time!
