“Our Town” is the place where all the people I know come from. It is a world both common and foreign. It is a spiritual journey that we have all seen or dreamed of in our moments of contemplation. With each step one takes it is an inner sanctuary, heaven. I think of why I feel we are all connected to these images and I see the “American Dream”. There is a quiet security that enriches our lives. It is a past and a future that you hope to leave others.
