"My decision to use the home as a symbol has a personal connection. I have renovated derelict old homes with the guidance of my father, a carpenter by trade, a perfectionist by heart. He provided me with the knowledge and skills needed to accomplish many tasks in repairing homes. Once, when installing a lock set, he wisely told me that if anyone wants to enter a house, they will find a way. Be cautious! I feel that I am that house. I am cautious whom I allow to enter my life. This was our last project together. He helped me with drawing plans and accurate measurements to build this project. He then passed away only two weeks later." TDG
