AT GRANDMA'S.

Updated: Apr 26


Pepe played his drum and looked to his grandmother. She sewed the buttons on the jacket of Pepe’s teddy bear. Each button had a different color; the first was blue, the second red, and the third green. She had already sewn two of the buttons and there was only one left. Grandmother saw Pepe through her round glasses and smiled. It was cozy and peaceful in Grandma's living room.


where is the green button?
at grandma's

Suddenly, when she wanted to sew the last, the green, button, it slipped out of her fingers and rolled over her skirt, down her leg, and over her soft slipper. Then it spun across the floor and disappeared under the table.


"Pepe, I've lost the green button. Can you find it for me?" asked Granny, still smiling.  

"Oh, yes!" said Pepe. He put both drumsticks in his back pocket and disappeared under the table.

Pepe wondered if the button could hide under the carpet. He lifted the corner of the carpet and could not believe what he saw. Under the carpet there was a deep blue hole. Pepe opened his eyes wide and leaned forward to look into the hole. He was so excited and a little scared, too. It was very unusual to find a hole under grandma's carpet, wasn’t it?!


Pepe stretched forward into the hole, to see whether the green button was in the hole. He could see nothing but blue, so he looked deeper into it. He looked deeper and deeper until he finally slipped into the blue hole. At the last moment he grabbed the end of the carpet, but that did not help. He moved with the whole carpet into the hole. Now he was flying on Grandma's carpet through a blue space, which was wide, deep and still. It was like the universe; infinite and full of stars, comets and planets. Pepe had already heard of the planets, but the planets here were different.

They were huge fruit planets. Did anyone live on them? Was the green button lying on one of the planets?

 

My key takeaways:


1.    SIMPLE THINGS CAN BE A SOURCE OF HAPPINESS.

 

2.   IT IS EASY TO LOSE THE THINGS THAT MAKE US HAPPY.

 

3.   NOTHING IS REALLY LOST AS LONG AS YOU KEEP LOOKING FOR IT.

It sounds like you're interpreting a profound allegory about our pursuit of growth and connection. The symbolism of the "green one" and the "blue" as sources of rejuvenation within nature, ourselves, or the universe is captivating. It reflects the timeless human quest for renewal and the search for deeper connections with life-giving forces.

An interesting thought, Luca. maybe the green stands for nature, the blue for universe, and the red for disrupting forces in-between?

Well, the green, the nature seems to be lost. Pepe is going to look for it. And it seems that he takes a different perspective by looking at the whole universe. Let's see what it brings. I can only tell that there will be many inspirations, also for leadership...
