The Tube in London, as any train, metro or bus today is a place of loneliness and separation more than of conviviality.
It is not the same in every country. In South-America, in the Indian sub-continent and in the middle East, from my experience, it is still possible to build a relation with a stranger during the travel. In Europe it is a bigger challenge, and in the far east, as Japan and South-Korea, you simply don’t see people anymore… you just see smart-phones and you have to guess that people are hiding behind them.
But children don’t follow the conventions and the rules of the adults, especially when those are not really natural. Children act according to their heart and the necessity, and they both deliver a message of Union.
Indeed, in these days when we experience growing fractures and non-comprehension, when Democracy has become nothing more than the power of subjective opinions, there is a strong need to Keep the Union, and to create or recreate a dialogue with others. There is a need to remember that a “stranger” is often just a brother which we don’t yet know, and that all of us share a common destiny despite of our possible divergent opinions.
It is thus urgent to regain a Heart of a Child. But how ? And is it really possible?
Yes it is, because the age of our heart is not measured in biological years, but in hope, imagination, and creativity. As long as we shall dream and won’t give up on our dreams, as long as we believe we can make a difference in this world, as long as we wake up with hunger to discover what the day will offer, we are young.
This is why some of us are still young at the age of 80 or more, and it also explains why we can encounter old people who have only lived 20 years or less. Being young is a way of living, and the Aphrodite of Gold, the Eternal Youth is offered to everyone.
But being alive is also being a rebel, and not everyone has the will and the courage to liveBack to Gallery
