Yep. Pondering "What Ifs". Perfect way to experience your full gamut of emotions

This is fascinating. Objective insight to the subjective reality. Love it. 

I also like to think of the actual experience vs. our perceived idea of the experience. Perhaps what looks beautiful in the window would be torment in reality.

Good job! Congrats for the DD! I like the concept and the message it conveys. Just wondering what's in the two empty windows... mean anything?

I time to wish....what time should a person go back in time in?

How would they make things different?

Any "window" of period of time can be a huge "butterfly effect".

I think this piece is quite incredible. The visual representation of The story behind the art (and vice-versa) has me left in a sort of eerie awe. It is beautiful. Well deserving of a DD!!! I think that most people, at one point in time or another, has thought about this.  I, on the other hand, think about it quite often.  Things we thought we never wanted and some that we thought we did, could all be TOTALLY different, by making ONE SMALL, seemingly insignificant, CHOICE!!! For me, there are things I wish I would have done different, HUGE THINGS THAT STILL AFFECT ME AND ALWAYS WILL,  but if I hadn't have done these things, would I be the person I am today? Heart A MOM/WIFE with a beautiful SON Loveand an amazing HUSBAND Heart ... The Family that I never THOUGHT I wanted...  but SO INCREDIBLY LUCKY THAT I DO!!! Like leaving your home 5 minutes earlier or later than usual... ONE phone call that you missed/answered/avoided... an exit you missed on the highway,  or meeting a girl, who sets you up on your very first (and only) blind date ever, that you hesitate, but eventually agree to go on, and that person ends up being the ONE that changes your life!  SMALL decisions/choices CAN and often DO have a HUGE IMPACT on our lives. Sometimes for better and sometimes for worse.  It really makes making some decisions, just that much more difficult when you realize how significant our "insignificant" decisions can really be, and how greatly they can effect our lives and the lives of others.

This is dope, I look at life, quite often actually, like this and wonder where and who I would be if i had made other choices.

Interesting! The scene depicted in this deviation is like a dream... :) (Smile) 
Captivating, mystifying, and it certainly raises a lot of thoughts in the viewer. Expertly done, fellow deviant! Clap
