This is an emotional landscape. It is not
possible to pull a large cart with such little
wheels through deep snow. The figure
represents someone who cannot yet let go
of the past. We all carry our past with us
to varying degrees. It forms the excess
mental baggage that we no longer need
yet continue pull along. If we could jettison
unnecessary encumbrances, our inner world
would change from a cold barren isolation
to a rich green countryside of rebirth.
