Within each person is a painter. And each painter has his vision mapped to his own exclusive canvas. For example- A mother, she has the vision of the unique life she wants her child to lead and the person she wants to see develop. Hence she coaxes the tiny tot towards a direction, whispers into the ear the next steps, moulds him and nurtures him.
When I say within each person, I mean literally within each person irrespective of the nature of his or her attributes. The thief exemplifies a vision and a scheme to be successful in all his endeavors. The more detailed the scheme and the more intricately planned his vision, the more the colors one sees in his canvas.
The most enrapturing paintings we see have the most diligently cultivated colors and a beautifully woven story to tell.
Each of us has a canvas, we only have to choose our colors to be the painter we envision, sculpting and sketching our work of art as we want it to be seen.
