be true to who you are

Avui sí que sembla que ja ens ha abandonat l'estiu i ja el començo a enyorar. Potser no sóc d'estar-me al sol però m'agrada no haver de posar-me mitjons ni abrics i sortir al terrat a llegir, regar, fer sopars sota el vol dels falciots, etc
Aquesta pàgina la vaig fer l'estiu passat un cop vaig veure la foto que havíem fet als nois en una platja de França. Els vaig veure tan vitals, tan feliços, tan units, tan autèntics .... 
Vaig utilitzar a més de paper estampat i tintes, paper vegetal transparent i enganxatines. La frase "Be true to who you are" crec que és un bon consell per a ells.


Quan tens fills, sense voler et pots anar creant espectatives sobre el seu futur però el millor és segurament estar ben aprop d'ells quan són petits, donant-los amor i seguretat i mica en mica deixar que vagin volant sols cap al futur que ells vulguin construir i que amb molta probabilitat no serà com el que els pares havíem pensat.


Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer's hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable.

Kahlil Gibran
