About "CUBA: The Blue Bird Dreams about the World beyond the Sea"
There are two types of people in this world: those who are happy with their everyday life and those who can but dream of finding their ideal home somewhere far away. The same difference can be seen even between two siblings who grew up in the same family. Sometimes their views of happiness are so different that they look as if they were from different families. Why is that? What is the meaning of our happiness? The conclusion of The Blue Bird written by Belgian author Maeterlinck is that the blue bird of happiness resides at home. The message of this story is the happiness is not somewhere far away but that it is always in your heart. That may be true. But hope for happiness in a faraway place still clings to some people. They believe that something good will wait for them if they go somewhere far away. Their wish would be stronger if they had grown up under strict rules and regulations.
