Boys on all continents often dream of the same thing – long voyages and travels, represent themselves heroes in battles. As a mother of two sons, I can easily imagine their thoughts and dreams. This picture is the opportunity for every adult to mentally return himself to childhood, to present his conditional “first ship,” which will be sent on a voyage. There is everything – and joy, and pride, and the fear of failure and the support of parents looking at this process from the outside. The coast is in pink colors as the color of childhood dreams and an atmosphere of happiness, which everyboby wants to keep in memory for life.
