Awakening from a wonderful dream in which she dreamed about her grandfather, Charity felt wistful. In the dream, she was still a young girl. She had discovered a set of pigments in a trunk under her grandfather’s bed. The set contained all the colors of the rainbow. Each color was rich and vibrant when mixed with linseed oil and smeared onto her hand. They were intense, deep, colors… simply beautiful… In the dream, her grandfather turned to her and said, "Paint me a mountain, Child- paint me a mountain like the mountains in my homeland;" after which, she began outlining a scene on the back of a tanned deerskin hide.

Dreading the thought of facing another day of the same old same, she took her time. She had never felt exactly this way before, however, she sort of felt similar to this after Jane’s abduction and desecration by Wheeler- and yes, it was a desecration. Wheeler had taken Jane’s innocence without her consent… Wheeler was like a black bile that had settled in her soul and was eating away what was left, causing her to feel filthy, immoral, and unsound. Charity felt that if she didn't get a grip on herself and find something to soothe her soul, she was going to wither away, she dressed in going out clothes; her naturalistic soul felt stifled, weighted, smothered down into a lump of blackened coal tar. Shaking off the melancholy feelings, she went into the front room and put on a pot of coffee. Later that morning, she left Martha and Jeremiah watching the children and walked to the Mercantile to inquire about the price of a set of pigments like the ones in her dream. Mr. Aderholt, the store proprietor, told her that he didn’t have much call for painting materials- but stated that a good set of pigments and brushes would cost her a pretty

He wiped off the slick sweat on the back of his neck, knowing it was his time to shine. Centennial Olympic Park surrounded him. The Bank of America Plaza towered to the East. He rubbed the back of his blood stained feet, shook off the blister pain, shoved his polished trainers on his feet, picked up his stick, and started for the other side of the field. He was in the big leagues now.
In the letter, the girl describes the deaths and beatings she bore witness to, while the boy narrates his hopeful attempt to flee the country on a boat.

Instead of Melinda saying exactly how she felt all the time in the book, Anderson uses Melinda’s paintings to keep a diary of her emotions.

After that, Janey hasn’t been the same. She isn’t the kind loving Janey that would normally be. She hasn’t woken up at 6:00 to make everyone breakfast, and when she has the day to herself, she doesn’t get out of bed. I thought it would be best if I gave her some alone time, so I thought I should go to Washington D.C to deliver my information. The drive up north was brutal, and I was pessimistic
Dreams, contrary to popular belief, are terrible. The best thing to do, is to stop chasing dreams because all dreams do is distract people from more important responsibilities.

In the memoir, The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, Jeannette’s mother, Rose Mary, has a dream of becoming an artist.

I lay in bed waiting to be called downstairs by my parents. I was ready for the long walk to the boat to America. My siblings, without a clue, think we are going to an amusement park. I look out my window to see the vast African desert staring back at me. Oh the wonders that America must hold.
Her strong usage of muted tones in contrast with striking spots of saturated, dark hues offer a sense of romanticism that is still rooted in reality. The dreamy and airy qualities are perhaps the things first noticed about Geher’s mostly portrait based work; the half-painted faces offering a almost classical sense of beauty due to the softness in which Geher conveys her subjects. Both the forms and execution are extremely soft and feminine and her brushstrokes almost lend themselves to evolving into floral patterns due to the muted coloring and the process of layering that
But she did it, either way, the strokes and colors were losing their vividness, I remember sitting with my mother in the evenings where she was either painting new things around the teepee or repainting faded works of hers, I was always infatuated with painting, in fact, I wanted to paint for a while but I was told that the only paint that should ever touch a man's hands should be that of war, and that was an indisputable statement from my father. As I walked into the teepee I felt a cold rush come over me as I entered, I darted to the dimming fire in the center of the floor and knelt down beside it, vying for warmth but my body was failing to react, finally I gulped again and swallowed my spit, after that everything was fine, I don't know what that was but I had never experienced it before, I decided to not speak of what happened to me for I feared what the reasoning for it would be. “Chaska?” muttered a fragile voice, it was my mother's, I turned around and saw her laying on her stacked furs, her face was pale and mouth laid agape, her eyes wandering around looking for me even though I was right in front of her, she was sweating even though it was surely too cold to do so, I crawled over to her and nuzzled my head into her arms, as
