My Dream at 13



At the age of 13, I had a dream in which I was walking with friends down my street – and then we began to run.  As we ran, each tree burst into flames. It was odd that the trees did not catch fire from one other – each tree burst into flames separately. Somehow I found myself in the middle of the street and the pavement turned to water. The water became overwhelming and I surrendered to it.  Just as I surrendered, I realized that I am in a whole new beautiful world. Looking back as an adult, I see what I want this world to be and I included Challah, Shabbos candles, and Mikva (ritual bath) in the painting.

The biblical verse in this painting is: כל דעביד רחמנא לטב עביד English translation is: All that happens is with mercy and it’s for the good.
