Made for :iconkaremelancholia: yellow love story [link]

Chapter 12 in ‘Through the looking glass’ by Lewis Carroll
The final two lines are

Lingering in the golden gleam --
Life, what is it but a dream?

In Karemeloncholia’s Yellow love story I think I see many allusions to both ‘Through the looking glass’ and’ Alice in wonderland’

I chose to interpret the story with that in mind.

We all think that we would be better off somewhere else from time to time, the unfortunate amongst us make that an extremely final reality.

I adore Carroll's stories; I've worked with them several times and I think they subconsciously stay inside of my in every single thing I try to create. Your work is very beautiful and inspiring, congrats... :D
