In the past I have discussed the difficulty in choosing to go "minimal" or "complex" with these pieces. In "Go", named after the Chinese game that dates back over 2,500 years, this piece seemed so simple, so minimal in concept and yet finding the "pattern" that appealed to me proved to be so difficult. So much more complex then I thought it would be. I had to keep reminding myself that there is no single solution to a piece and that every "solution" has some merit as well as limitations. The beauty is in the choice and sticking to it. As a metaphor for life, I have come to appreciate that I would rather be "wrong" then be "nothing". I would rather make a choice then not choose at all.
