Objective Representation

Have you ever felt that a certain inanimate object represents you? Maybe you dreamed it, or saw it and felt a connection?  For the past few years, I have had just that.

I was visiting an old fortress in Spain, and from a turret you could look down at the water and see a little red dinghy just floating there.  For some reason, I connected to this red dinghy, I knew how it felt.  I’ve made drawings where I semi-consciously inserted a red dinghy on some body of water, to represent myself in the scene.  I have a few photos of various little red boats from all over the world, some moored, some floating, some motorized, some beached or overturned.  Can I say why this represents me?  Not a clue. Perhaps it is a similar feeling of “being adrift”?  I’m open to any interpretations though.
