A week or so later, I noticed the smaller pyramidal shape that I had temporarily put in another composition. It too was a piece where random occurrences had interrupted the flow. I saw their relationship and had the epiphany that led to: CHOICE POINT (SAUL)!
Why that title? Even before that call for art came out from the Benedictine Center, that intense visual tension where the points nearly touch struck me as a "conversion" moment. I immediately thought of the Biblical story of Saul, who was struck blind and instructed, by God, to go to the home of an enemy and wait: to be healed? to be killed? He did as told, although he could have chosen otherwise. Ultimately he changed and became the apostle Paul, rather than languish as "wasted material."
Big choices. Little choices. I guess that's life!
