creating and destroying, keeping everything whirling and flowing,
allowing no rest but in rhythmical motion,
chasing everything in endless song out of one beautiful form into another.

and through space heaven knows how fast and far! ~ John Muir

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything
