After typing this poem, I looked at it for awhile with an admiration for its form and message synchronicity. The designer in me is constantly seeking for clever flow and play. I immediately began to look at visual elements that I could adjust for a more polished affect, you know, to turn it into something, such as smoothing the curves to follow a linear path or closing the upper curve to create a closed hour glass. But I didn’t move to make one change. It was beautiful just the way it was with its ‘imperfections’. It already was something. It is a story that is real. It tells of a weathered journey in a quiet tone that comes from experience of discovery.
