Elisabeth decided to define her own project. She became interested in the Golden Ratio. She came to me with a boatload of questions she wanted to tackle ranging from: 1) How can I create the Golden Spiral? to 2) Why is the Golden Rectangle aesthetically pleasing?
I said, "yeah, that's some good stuff there. I trust you. Do it."
Two days later, I sit down with her as she's working and watch her think. She has this perplexed look on her face as she is shuffling through her notes. She has about a half-dozen different rectangles sketched with different dimensions along with more questions than what she started with.
She looks up and says, "The more I look through all this, I'm wondering, 'what's my question?'"
That's right, Elisabeth. Don't ever forget that.
