Spotted, in a church bell tower, before a wedding.
Spiral staircases are fantastic pieces of design, giving maximum verticality in limited space.
Spirals are found in many places in nature – in seashells; in the patterns of our own DNA; in galaxies of stars.
I reflect that I have spiraled both upwards and down in my own life.
The thing with spirals is that they cross over themselves at different levels.
I have found myself at different stages of life crossing over myself, or at least a version of myself.
Oh yeah, I think, maybe I have been here before; but at another level, in another time.
And when I find myself in one of those occasional downwards spirals, I have to remind myself that the set of stairs ascends also.
The newlyweds will learn that too…
