Sometimes there is a clear path we march along, our heads held high, our goal in sight. But more often we are led down the abstract way where the twists and turns are so jagged that we can't see our way forward. We keep moving along because we have no choice…that is what life asks of us.

As we take each step our journey is fueled by the hope that the answers we seek are up ahead…just around the bend of the abstract way.

Chapter 15-Hello Kitty Glitter Art

We move into the next soundstage. There is a Japanese girl-band playing onstage and clusters of tables with Hello Kitty themed centerpieces. The far wall is brightly lit, and we walk over to discover a wall of different Hello Kitty paintings. The mini-show is called Hello Kitty the Muse: Twenty Artists Interpret the World's Most Famous Cat.The artwork is fun and irreverent and nothing that will ever end up in MOMA. One image of Hello Kitty as an angel is rendered entirely in glitter.
