These architectural compositions are a metaphor for overcoming fear and taking steps of faith to grow and experience life to its fullest.  Taking a step into the unknown gives us wisdom.  If we don't take a step forward we will never experience adventure, joy, and fulfillment.  Jeff Olson has reminded me in his book, The Slight Edge, that "simple daily disciplines - little productive actions, repeated consistently over time - add up to the difference between failure and success."  I take small steps toward my goals every day by creating something, whether it's a painting, teaching students, or reading to expand my thoughts and tune into my creative mind.
