I made this piece at a time when I was feeling really helpless - it felt like the path in front of me was insurmountably difficult. It felt like, to everyone else, the way forward was a set of steps to climb - challenging at times, perhaps, but doable. One foot in front of the other, steady. But to me, it felt like the steps were there, but they were flooded by an impassable current of water flowing down them, and I had no way to ford through it. And I felt like it was my fault. But I could still see what I was reaching for, the hope at the end - the flower growing at the top of the staircase. I guess it was my way of reminding myself what I continued to struggle up the stairs for.
