  • What can you see?
  • What makes this image so beautiful?
  • Who is the person?
  • Why are they holding a bike? Where have they come from? Where are they going? Why aren’t they riding the bike? Why have they stopped?
  • Why is the person looking up?
  • Are the stars speaking?
  • What are the person’s dreams? How will they reveal themselves?


Broader questions:

  • What are dreams?
  • Do you have any dreams?
  • How is a dream similar/different to a goal or a wish?
  • Can you do anything to help yourself to achieve your dreams?
