fold \ unfold
Everyday subtle changes occur within each of our lives. The process of learning and developing continues, often without notice. This maturation ultimately directs each of us in our journey toward our own destination.
Along this journey, we come across single inconsequential elements, small in stature and singularly frail. Yet when we find these elements in multiples, this union seems to loom large, creating hypnotic undulations. Everyday, opportunities are waiting to be created and seized. Everyday, opportunities are passed over with contempt.
Occasionally, information is presented to us in garbled context, familiar words that don’t complete a sentence, yet infer a feeling, sense or idea, leaving us to fill in the blanks. Our individual experiences add up to become the sum of who we are.
Presented to each of us is the prospect to sit and wonder, perhaps about the past, present or fantasy. Do we choose to sit and contemplate the possibilities? Do we choose not to choose and wait for direction? Do we choose to give in to our fears of the unknown and fold ourselves in the comfort of safety?
