The idea is that we are all born the same; we are all equal. As we grow, we impose restrictions on ourselves and on our children. We are not born afraid of the dark or spiders. As we grow, we learn to be scared of new adventures, new foods, and new experiences, and so our world shrinks. This fear is all between our ears, it’s not real. Yet we persist in living it and passing it on, instead of welcoming and sharing the joy of the new and the unknown. For me, the big heads symbolize children: new, uncorrupted, their heads full of endless possibility, open to whatever comes their way. It is only as we grow older that our heads become smaller. So my wish is to keep our heads as big as possible and continue to marvel at the beauty of nature, revel in the smell of the flowers and the beauty of life.
