Round Hole + Square Peg = Room to Grow
Width 79cm x Height 117cm
Some people strive to be a perfectly round peg gliding into a smooth round hole. To them it feels tight and secure. Others struggle to fit into a slot, easing and squeezing themselves into place. Lubrication can help, but they are mostly always uncomfortable.
Then there are those who accept that their corners do not conform and they rattle around, discovering that they have a little ‘wiggle-room’. Far from not fitting in, it allows them the freedom and space to grow.
The usual connotation of being a ‘square peg in a round hole’ is a negative one. I think the opposite – I like the freedom derived from having the extra space to think in alternative ways and to be a little different.
