To Heed the Call

"I have not always chosen the safest path. I've made my mistakes, plenty of them. I sometimes jump too soon and fail to appreciate the consequences. But I've learned something important along the way: I've learned to heed the call of my heart. I've learned that the voice of fear is not always to be trusted." -Steve Goodier

It is a spiritual thing to comprehend what simplicity means." -Frank Lloyd Wright, The Natural House
