Description of the picture

At the age of 24, I read the work of Fyodor Mikhailovich Dostoevsky, Uncle's Dream,. Although the meaning of the work has nothing to do with the picture, I still wanted to call it that way. As children, children often fly in their sleep. They say that it is at this time that they grow. There they find themselves in the fairy-tale world of their imagination.
A little boy dreams of flying not only a kite, but also a big beautiful sailboat. This flying Dutchman embodies all his unfulfilled dreams and desires. In the soul, every man is a little that boy from his distant cloudless childhood ......

Прочитав описание картины, в котором упоминалось безоблачное детство, я вдруг подумал - что детство вовсе не безоблачное. Облаками является тот змей и тот парусник, те планеты на горизонте. Если парусник - олицетворение мечтаний,-то, быть может, наши мечты и мешают нам идти по единственной нарисованной для нас дороге. Все эти "облака" отвлекают, на них мы заостряем внимание, тем самым тратя много времени. И вот, в конечном итоге, по дороге идёт уже не ребёнок, но старик.
