    Pictures elaborately illustrate our inner thoughts, desires, and fears. Through the correct use of color tone and/or intricacy to line definition, artists can invoke feelings of empathy that cause sensations. These sensations are personal, but can also be relatable in most cases.
    In the artwork you see above, there is a boy packed with his belongings. He is gazing out to what can be perceived as a picture of the outside world. He is girded up to what seems like a sword to imply his preparation to leave for the outside world. However, as one looks at his face, it appears that he is conflicted with hesitation. What could be going through his head? Is he truly ready for the journey that lies ahead?
    I feel us as college students can relate to this feeling all too well. We are constantly working, planning, and preparing for the journey life has for us. Whether that may mean us pursuing degrees we are passionate about, or finding our true purpose in life through internal thinking or volunteer work we have all been there. We don’t know what the future has for us, and although we have the tools necessary to advance unto life, we must proceed with caution with every step we take
