Thought behind the thought:
It takes years and years of patience and hard work raising a child. Raising children is more about learning than teaching. It is more about setting examples than expectations. Most importantly it is about communication, bonding and giving time. Before you know it the children are ready to take off. Set off, on exciting new voyages! They will definitely benefit in the knowledge that you have faith in their convictions and actions.
About the art:
Sir David Attenborough broadcaster and naturalist, is best known for writing and presenting the nine Life series with the BBC Natural History Unit. A former senior manager at the BBC, he also served as controller of BBC Two and director of programming for BBC Television in the 1960s and 1970s. He is the only person to have won BAFTA awards for programmes in each of the black and white, colour, HD, and 3D formats. Attenborough set about creating a body of work which became a benchmark of quality in wildlife film-making and influenced a generation of documentary film-makers of future generations.
Documentary filmmaking needs infinite patience, courage, conviction and faith just like parenting. The length at which one goes to capture a single frame is simply remarkable. The odds are always against you. You go in with your gut and relentlessly give it your all. The terrains that one has to navigate, the problems you encounter and all the hardship is worth that one shot of twenty four frames.
These base jumping goslings and their parents are indeed unique creatures. Young goslings plummets themselves down a cliff on a maiden flight. Down below are the richest pickings and to reach it they make the leap of faith along with their parents. Also waiting down below are predators from whom they need protection as well. Yet in spite of not having developed wings these goslings make a parachute like dive from the cliff. The gosling go down the cliff bumping into rocks but still make it and live to tell the tale. They have a unique mechanism where if their bellies hit the rocks they cushion them and most survive.
