Take Your Inspiration From Wherever You Find It, No Matter How Ridiculous
I have no idea who created the image, but there it was: a boy sitting on a tower at night with a book in his lap, looking up at the stars, contemplating the meaning of life.
I looked at that cartoon image and instantly knew that Pennie and I would someday build a tower with a star deck where people could gather late at night and look at the stars and think big thoughts.
High ceilings inspire big thoughts.
The stars are painted across a very high ceiling.
I have no idea who drew that image, or why, but the little boy with a book in his lap is now made of bronze, and he leans against the base of a monumental bronze sculpture by Gary Lee Price called Journeys of Imagination.
That statue sits squarely in the center of the star deck of the Tower at Wizard Academy where the boy flies 900 feet above the city of Austin, Texas.
When next you come to a class in the Tower, take a moment to sit down next to that little boy, and see if you can figure out what he’s looking at.
You can take a chair with you, if you want.
And maybe a glass of wine.
