I did this one rather quickly last night (like 15 minutes).
I took a few pics of the steps along the way,
but this morning, somehow, i erased them before i could download. :-(
No masterpiece, but at least it's something.
When i was younger, i wanted to be an architect.
I also wanted to be an archeologist, an astronaut,
and a missionary in a third world country.
But that's another post. ;-)
In my late 20's, after having worked at crappy jobs for a decade,
i decided i would attend university and finally become an architect.
Since i had been out of school for so long, i took a year of Pre-technology
to brush up on my math and science skills.
And during that year, i thought i would lose my mind.
Math, Physics, Chemistry - what was i thinking?!
Needless to say, my plans changed,
and i became a Graphic Designer rather than an architect.
And eventually, i became a full blown artist.
i'm still somewhat of an archeologist - only rather than dig in dirt,
i dig into myself and the world around me to make sense of things. :-)
There are lots of great architects out there, and
Sarah Susanka is one of my favorites.
Her books on architecture are beautiful... both the photos and the writing.
Which is why i almost had a heart attack when i saw this book by her...
I've begun reading it, and so far, i love it.
I believe questions are important.
It's one thing to live our lives a certain way,
but isn't it important to know why we make certain choices?
The why's are more important to me than the how's.
Happy Monday everyone!
