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 28-Couple in Paris

I get up and walk over to one in particular that has caught my eye. It is a rear view of a couple leaning on a railing overlooking the scenery. A sweeping view of Paris lies before them, with the Eiffel Tower rising tall above the enchanting city. The couple is dressed in clothes I would estimate from the '50s, and their body language suggests that they are in love. It is a non-traditional composition with the couple low and to the side of the frame, and it is brilliant.
