Design through the Portal of Life

What Is Our ‘Sell-By’ Date?

Looking at the conceptual continuity of angles, colors, and spatial consciousness we delve into the realm of articulating real world awareness. This awareness comes in many forms.

One form is the design of our living space to enhance comfort and help eliminate stress . Another form is the relationship with those around us and the strangers we meet on a daily basis. So many variations on this theme, one can visualize focusing on life’s strategy through the magnifying glass of possibility.

The symmetry of design reflects a non-cluttered environment with colors that build a foundation of aesthetic beauty. This approach is pleasing to the senses, especially sight. Each color can omit an emotional response that excites, soothes, or reflects an underlying passion of expression.

Angles are also pleasing to the eye and perform as a magnet to our unconscious desire. This desire is the curiosity that completes the circle of appreciation for architecture and the questioning of the inspiring skill and message it conveys.

A pyramid in Egypt or the pyramid at the entrance to the Louvre. The uniformity of design that frames the cables of a  suspension bridge, or the strands of strings on a harp. Each man made design can be attributed to the beauty that nature inspires.

The wings of a bird are aerodynamically connected with the quality that moves them through the air.  The ability to seemingly float forever on the breath of the wind is captivating.  They glide across a vista which has created the inspiration for man wanting to experience that motion and affect.

Each design motivated by nature is a persuasion of admiration for the uniformity built upon its affect.

The portal of life is a structure built on these life’s experiences. This involvement in analytics includes but are not limited to education, travel, interaction with others, and the wisdom gained from our victories and our failures. The design of our life takes vision, confidence, the ability to listen to those with the knowledge we desire, and the action required to fulfil our destiny.

When I look to the stars I see the pattern of light illuminating the sky with a deep dark background that makes them even more impressive. This portal of mystery has intrigued man from the beginning of time. Anytime there is an enigma we attempt to discover the secrets beyond our vision of understanding.

Gazing through the portal of life we begin to understand a very small portion of the puzzle to explain that which lies before us. Each piece of the puzzle is but a small thread of the DNA that we can comprehend. Every bit of understanding opens another door of questions which stretches our ability to put the puzzle into a framework we can fathom.

Is there a God? Are we the only planet with living organisms that can process thought? Is time travel possible? Have we been visited by extraterrestrials and if so what was there goal to come to earth? What is our family lineage from the beginning of time? And a thousand other questions that we don’t even know what to ask.

If our design through the portal of life is a simple one, then the choices we’ve made add to this point may place us upon the threshold of a dream. Each dream we live in becomes a line of embarkation or an immersion into the plan we love. Our age can diminish our perspective or it can enhance our need to discover. Which ever it is the greatest distance we will travel is the six inches between our ears.

In the world we live in our past becomes a stepping stone for the future. Living in the moment becomes our appreciation for every minute, second, hour we can still take a breath. That consciousness gives us the peace of mind required to envision our future, craft our life, and begin a new chapter. Why? Because life is about beginnings and endings.
