spiral notebook

cc cover - February 6, 2014pm

When I created this book cover, I thought the message was obvious…

Now, I’m thinking, maybe not…

The flower must be struck by the lightning bolt in order to open up. That’s how it must happen—sometimes.

The flower has a spiral in its stem, because (as I see it), that’s the way we progress: on a spiral.  The spiral is a paradox: moving upward on a spiral, sometimes you’ll be traveling downward, yet you’ll still be going up.
