Dream catcher - A project for a colorful world of stories

March 4, 2012
By SHIKHA PASRIJA , Times-Republican

Being a mother of two lovely daughters is one of the best things that ever happened to me in my life. Their colorful and joyful stories, silly grins and giggles fill my days with so much love and happiness.

I see them cracking silly jokes and laughing until their tummies hurt and wonder why and when in life we grow up and stop living like a child. We get stuck on things and cannot let go, we forget to forgive and start worrying too much. Why does growing up really mean leaving our innocent, beautiful heart and world behind. Even the jokes should make perfect sense.

Dream Catcher is a joyful artwork from my daughter's colorful world of stories. I feel blessed that I get to experience through my daughters what I left far behind in the life and even forgot how it felt ... to be a child.
