While driving home from a holiday party, I stopped at a traffic signal.
There in the median stood a woman holding a sign: "Hungry."
I lowered the window and called out, "Are you hungry?"
She nodded and ran to my car.
I handed a plate of leftover bread to her.
She took it, thanked me, and ran back to the median.
So begins a story that leads the artist and audience on a journey:
through hope and fear, to curiosity and courage, to meaning and beyond.
