It looks like a a women on the cover
only the eyes and mouth seem important
looks like a city but looks like a explosion or fire works covering most of the city
The dark blue background of the face but the city is so bright and looks alive.
The american dream has many meaning to different people but the cover I think show two side the change to live a great big full life with the city and the face mean you accomplished what you came to america for.

"What color is God's spirit?" and Ruth replied, "It doesn't have a color…. God is the color of water."
I feel this quote shows the growing curiosity of james and the other children. They are now old enough to realize that they are different and they will have to deal with it. Also does not matter what color God or anyone else is.
This was a hard chapter for ruth talking about the constant threat of the kkk around. Also her brother Sam had just ran away. This to me shows how much james and his mother are alike.
Brother and sisters
I think this chapter real solidifies what james was fighting as a child have multiple brothers and sisters running away and he could have done the same thing. This also can show what is important to james.
"How come you don't look like me?"
This quote shows how race is not that big in this family because the response was that she is his mom and that is the end of the story.
I think in this chapter ruth begins to hate the jewish religion and. I believe that her family caused her to be the way she is now. For example with death her family just repressed feelings and never mentioned it.
This chapter is another example of how james family is ahead of their time so to speak. They use religion to get past the attention that is brought to them.
The old testament
The title plays into the chapter well because the chapter talks about how ruth's life started in the states just like the old testament starts the bible.

- The epicenter of the painting with the guy holding what looks like a horn
- Different rings of brightness the further out the darker
- walking on a gear
The gear could be never ending once your on you don't come of type of deal.
The man holding the saxophone looks like he is questioning a higher power

I too want things to happen that we know are out of reach
Those things are the epitome of how we think
To bring to ideas into reality
The thoughts that drive us help us find
What we think of ourselves in our mind
With so many ideas that come and go it's hard to keep track and stay on the roadReally the question that we should be asking
What road is it that we are on?

(Something that I use the most and/or a necessity)
"To affect the quality of the day, that is the highest of arts"- Walden
this is true because we don't need anything but ourselves to change our day. And to do this is a special thing to do because only some people can do it.
