Everyone has dreams and personal ambitions but not every dream can come true and in many cases the unfavourable odds are just too great. For instance, many rural farmers wish to live a comfortable life; every athlete dreams of a gold medal; and an orphan might dream of having a family. Dreams are beautiful but when dreams do not materialize, they become as heavy and unsympathetic as rocks.
This tote bag talks about the burden we carry through all our unachieved and seemingly impossible dreams; the ones that weigh our hearts down, like a bag of rocks.
