In 1840, Carl Spitzweg created the work, Der Schmetterlingsjäger '. In the foreground you can see two stately butterflies, obviously very rare specimens and a few meters further you can see the butterfly collector on an expedition. With a surprised look he looks at the beauty of the butterflies. The Butterfly Catcher has prepared himself carefully for his expedition, he has everything he needs and his net in hand to be ready at any time. But at the decisive moment he is frozen. He simply stands stock-still and watches the butterflies flutter open-mouthed. We also set everything up so that happiness, if it comes, then remains. But when it's suddenly there, just a few feet away, tall and beautiful and bright blue, there is no determination. Even if we were just determined, in the moment of pure luck you forget everything about it, even capture it. But you probably can not catch the luck, even the butterfly catcher would only have destroyed it. Happiness settles down with us, but it flutters away the next moment, maybe forever. But for a moment it was there. © Meisterdrucke
