I have a Jewish friend, on his shoulder, there is a tattoo of Peter Pan chasing his own shadow. My friend said “Everybody always chases after something, no?”
Yes, Peter Pan is chasing his shadow which never sticks with him, never be with him, will he still chase it if they are together all the time? Will he still chase it if he get a bit bigger and the shadow doesn’t fit him anymore? Will he still chase it if he ever grows up?…
It’s like wanting something we don’t have.
The harder it takes, the more we want. We want it bad.
Likes wanting somebody we could never have, we think it will get better in time, but it is really not.
The question is : Will we ever forget the one we used to want when we grow a bit more?
Peter Pan, somehow will grow up, not inside the book, but with us, because we all have a little Peter inside…
