Monday Blueprint Madness

I’m continuing on the theme of upward spirals. What fabulously atypical spiral staircases. In the middle of an airy room (right image), you step into a chamber of shadows. One step at a time, in semi-darkness, in a tight circle of upward mobility…stepping up in faith.

The double-spiral is also interesting. You can’t tell who else might be ascending or descending beside you.

I’m fascinated by the images. What a wonderful feat of architecture – to allow ascension without taking up much “real estate.”

Spiritually, our own ascension can take place without adding or detracting from our environments. We should not consider this acceptable, no matter how common.


No matter whether our spiral staircase is grand or simple, we should plan to make an impact. It’s not enough to slip quietly from view! We need to be proud of who we are. We need to bring light into the world. Declare yourself! Step out in faith!

Happy Memorial Day! In recognition for all who stepped out in faith and courage, losing their lives to protect our freedom and/or to support the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

  2. Very Nice post. It made me think of the miracle spiral staircase that we saw in Santa Fe, New Mexico. It is an amazing story…. you can see it here http://www.4marks.com/articles/details.html?article_id=2066or herehttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loretto_Chapel

  3. Heidi and Jeanette – thank you both. I am glad for your continuing support of my efforts to step up in faith.I’d forgotten the story of the Loretta Chapel staircase. It’s a powerful message of answered prayers.
