These pearls are important moments in your life which you carry in your heart through life. The profound moments of affinity give the voyage of life a meaning. We all travel alone with our personal luggage, but if we can go together a piece of the way, that is beautiful.The author has brilliantly captured a fantastical, humorous approach to something that is not generally thought of as being funny, but being able to laugh at a predicament is half way to conquering it.
