MY ONLY ONE

MY ONLY ONE

A rose leading you to a small, cosy world, further and further into warm embrace, further and tighter… It’s intimate, dark, stuffy.
The rose uplifting high in a breath-taking vortex… Higher and higher… It’s lonely, cold and terrifying.
Comfortable boundaries have been chosen but… boundaries restrain.
The choice is made every day, every moment.
«Everything begins with a choice», – Morpheus, «The Matrix».
We choose the Only One in the whole Galaxy, and we are to see the whole galaxy inside the Only One…
A young lady embroidering with cross-stitch her dreams on the wedding gown… «Mine» is an important word that can lift you up or let you down,
to tighten with iron cross …The fear is just round the corner, with assurances, vows, promises…
The sun, the sky, the stars — are they mine? Yes and no… «Only your heart is truly farseeing. The eyes do not see the most essential things»…
The Heart decides…
The rose’s gaze is powerful and defenseless at the same time. This is a warning and a wish of Eternal Love.
