this feels satisfyingly practical and targeted. But when you’re focused on the straight, confined highway in front of you, you compromise your peripheral view—which is to say, you miss most of what’s going on. Moreover, circular being allows us to learn from the environments we occupy. The seasons always come around again. True connection to ourselves and to the earth requires inviting our environment in rather than pushing it away, observing and connecting with natural cycles rather than artificially creating a track for humanity to traverse where the results are often dark and painfully clear.
