When we are forced to look at our reflection and come to terms with a truth we are reluctant to accept, a distorted view of who we thought we were emerges.  Abstract shapes and ideas arise from the distortions of truth, complexities occur within the abstractions and reality becomes blurred, thus the original transforms anew.  We are finding a point or intersection(ality) that unites us internally and externally, as we arise to new challenges and reassert our identity we look within for strength and look into the heart of the sunrise as we greet each new day as a blessing.
