A Pattern Language

A while back, when we were in the process of dreaming up our home…before the we had a well or broke ground, before the design phase…our neighbors lent us a book called A Pattern Language – Towns-Buildings-Construction. We used this amazing book to help refine what we wanted to create by analyzing our own patterns.

Without even realizing it, I find myself recognizing visual patterns in my everyday life. They fascinate me, and I often make effort to capture them with my camera, like with this small waterfall in the middle of a canal that runs through the old section of Annecy, France.

I may go back and find that book again…just to see if I can pick up on other sorts of patterns by using the techniques presented in it. The skill of recognizing patterns is timeless…and can be effective in every aspect of one’s life with great results. All you’ve got to do is read between the lines and it will become clear.
