Way back in the sixties I saw a painting hanging in my friends apartment in Berkley. The painting was done in a monotone color of green. I recall, as I was looking at it that it is the road of life! THE ROAD OF LIFE THE ROAD OF LIFE IS AS THAT, WHICH I HAVE SEEN. WHO BUT PAINTED THIS..... I DO NOT KNOW. BUT THERE WAS A ROAD, AND MANY STROLLED ALONG ITS WAY. SOME HAND IN HAND....... AND SOME ALONE. AND THIS ROAD HAD MANY TURNS, WITH LAMPS TO LIGHT THE WAY. AND ON EACH SIDE WAS THE SEA.... AND NOW AND THEN A FOG COULD BE SEEN. THE ROAD WAS LONG..... SO VERY LONG. AS IF TO STRETCH TO ETERNITY AND SO DID VANISH AT HORIZON AND SEA. AND WHAT OF THEY...... WHO WALK THIS ROAD? FOR THERE IS THE FOG...... AND SO MANY TURNS...... AND SO THERE ARE SOME WHO LOOSE THEIR WAY SOME FALL OFF......... AND OTHERS GO ASTRAY BUT, WHAT IS THIS FOG...., THAT BLINDS THEIR WAY? PERHAPS THEY HAVE QUARRELED..... AND GO SO FAR ASTRAY.
