Black and white print – a part of the series, “Lessons Learned from Six-year Olds”
The inspiration for this print comes from two different six-year olds. One of them who saw the parents arguing and pointing fingers at each other, calmly said, “Don’t live in the past!” The other child had by mistake hit his grandfather while swinging a toy around. The grandfather told him to be more careful before he starts swinging things around. The next day when the grandfather tried to remind him in an effort to reinforce the lesson, the child calmly said, “That was yesterday. Past is past!” How true! Instead of living in the present moment, we spend much of our time living either in the memories of the past or living in the imagined future.
