.....A very poor man lived with his wife.
One day, his wife, who had very long hair asked him to buy her a comb for her hair to grow well and to be well-groomed. The man felt very sorry and said no. He explained that he did not even have enough money to fix the strap of his watch he had just broken. She did not insist on her request.
The man went to work and passed by a watch shop, sold his damaged watch at a low price and went to buy a comb for his wife.
He came home in the evening with the comb in his hand ready to give to his wife.
He was surprised when he saw his wife with a very short hair cut.
She had sold her hair
and was holding a new watch band.
Tears flowed simultaneously from their eyes,
not for the futility of their actions, but for the reciprocity of their love.
MORAL: To love is nothing, to be loved is something...!!!
“The real beauty in this picture is the attention to detail that the artist, Octavio Ocampo took. Try this: squint your eyes a little and you’ll see that the man with the guitar fades away, and the old man staring into the old woman’s eyes really starts to pop out at you. Perhaps the scariest part of this illusion is that the younger woman has some really mean sideburns! Look out! Also, keep looking until you find: the young girl, the tequila bottle, and the giant vase! Quite a crazy optical illusion painting!” ( when I first saw the photo it was just of an old man and woman looking at each other.)
