Trapped in a Box

28. Trapped in a box

A friend of mine, Will Albertus, is a pastoral counselor and is also a woodworker. One time he gave me a gift that he created after seeing a similar cartoon.

You’ll have to try to visualize it. It’s the shape of a small wooden box. There is a solid base and the top is the very same as the base except there is a fairly large hole in it. There are four corner poles connecting the top and the bottom. On one side there are two more connecting poles so that that one side looks like a jail. The other three sides are open, having only the corner poles. On the side that looks like a jail, there is the figure of a person looking out. It appears that this person is trapped.

But wait? Is she?

Because all she has to do is to turn and walk out any of the other three sides.

That physical but very open (except for one side) box has served to remind me over and over of the learning that it teaches: When I’m feeling trapped in one direction, I need to be sure to look around and see if there are alternatives.
