Category Archives: Safety First


If I have a choice of two routes from Dunlap to Pinnacle Peak, the longest route being Seventh St, The shortest Cave Creek Rd., I’ll choose Seventh St. even though it is several miles farther to my goal.
When I design the interior of my home, that interior gets changed weekly, perhaps daily. I feel safest when I am surrounded with Beauty and Continuity and I seek daily to improve.
I designed a home for a blind friend in 2013; when I listed her priorities, they were based on a lifetime of knowing how to find things , priorities which were first established when she had sight. “Anything else I need to know?”, I asked?
“Yes” she replied with a thoughtful look and a brief pause; “make it beautiful and please make it safe.”
