Ah, the most important human emotion; without which there would be no movement, success or survival in life. Back to Sophia's world, the woman who died in Husband and the Trolls. Some believe her ending a nightmare, which she woke up from. Some see the drawings as recollections of her life. No one can tell whether her death at the beach with the trolls actually happened.
Anyway, maybe she did not wake up. Maybe she did die at the beach, and if that's the case, then we must accept the narrative. However, perhaps life, like a dream doesn't happen so simple; that there are pieces missing. No one could foresee the crystal she held could have been ice. If she did die, and all of the pieces afterward simply are recollections of her life, in love, and where she found herself at the beach, then did she not love? She loved before or afterward, dream or not. That's the lesson if there is any at all. That's what I'm trying to say to you; even if she did die at the beach she still loved, and that is what matters!
So, whether this new work is a recollection of her life, or her life after the nightmare it is still love, whether before or after the beach. It does not matter, that is what I'm trying to tell you. She did die out there at the beach, but it's up to you the viewer to decide if she came back. You see, it's up to you. Whose to say life, like a dream doesn't happen so simple.
