A Tower is seen in the distance. It looks like a Mayan Temple or Egyptian Pyramid. As you get closer, you see people climbing all around it, and stopping. Closer still, you realize that some people are reading, some are writing. As you walk up to it you see that each side has a sign on it: “This side was written on at POrtalBurn” and “This side was written on at Playa del Fuego”. You realize that the Tower is a traveling time capsule that fosters communication. It has traveled to eight different events in the North East United States. Each side has a different personality. You mount the Tower and quickly get engrossed in the art and the prose. You notice that there is a little bin of colored markers. You grab one and carry it with you as you wander up and around the Tower, waiting for that inspirational message to spark a reaction. Time passes, you don’t realize how high up you’ve climbed until you stop and turn, and see the view….and then the epiphany hits you.
