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.

Work of Art Epilogue-Vincent Van Gogh, Starry Night

For a brief moment I look out the window, and in the night sky dotted with points of light, I imagine Van Gogh's Starry Night. His vision, swirls of stars suspended in cobalt blue, lingers as we fall into a deep sleep.

In my dream we have lassoed the moon and flown through the Starry Night. In our bed-shaped chariot, arms and legs, large and small, are intertwined. Together we are one, full of hope and love, brimming with the sweetest promise for what our future holds.
