Childhood might seem like an enchanted interlude for some people. First of all it is the time of insouciance, this very rare and ephemeral state of being. Bimbi delves into the footbridges that link up our different states of mind; from freedom to pressure, from joy to sadness; from imagination to reality; from insouciance to torment. This book looks at the matter that shapes one’s personality or that even builds a society. To take time to observe feelings and emotions where there are the liveliest (during childhood) might enable the reader to reinterpret the world by speculating on the meaning of life. What do we do with these first feelings? What do we keep from these small splinters of insouciance? Albertine’s illustrations are the opportunity to understand what makes us come alive and what brings us together.
