It could be sweet…

…like a long forgotten dream
. – Portishead

I saw this boy sitting quietly, blowing bubbles in a busy street amidst the noise and confusion of a festival.
It was like a scene from a dream long ago, almost forgotten, buried underneath memories of growing up.

    there is something about this boy that seizes my imagination… I’m with Tammie, you have the ability to deeply resonate with people – especially our dreamy sides… I’m so impressed by you, every post!

    Thank you for commenting on my blog!
    I could use the same exact words about your work. It’s perfect for this theme.

    I like the difference between the image of a child blowing bubbles – how sweet – against the muted colours that you have chosen and earthy textures. A lovely piece.
