Ideas are malleable. They're like clay, a shifting, changing mass built from a lifetime of raw material. They have stories, feelings and emotions woven into them. They're not an easy thing to unpack. They require nourishment, a constant tending to, a clipping of the bad so that more of the good can grow, because they are literally the flower bed that our lives take shape on and through. We need to learn how to mold them. And of the most important ways to learn how to handle the unstable energy that ideas are, in my ...
Flowing water is a remarkably good teacher. It does not resist. It does not stop, brood or digress. It molds itself to flow over, around and through obstacles. It is patient.

And then as I mused further, I began thinking that 800 years isn't really that long ago if we ...
