    The Blue Bird as the desire for ephemeral, ungraspable happiness. An adventurous voyage towards the soul of the things and beings around us, the seeking itself being the destination – only during this seeking can the two central characters come to comprehend that human relations and compassion are that which can bring us the Blue Bird of Happiness.
