we are: people, branches, and the earth, all involved in making something, making it freely, making it creatively.
no one is obliged to make it the same way as others do, or as others have done.
no one is obliged not to make it in these traditional ways either.
freedom is somewhere between these two artificial obligations.
we are free to make, and to rearrange with grace and skill what is being made in us, the life that lives in us.
we are not automatons, not even automatons of the spirit.
We collaborate with grace and skill with whatever good spirit lives in us.
