can't decide if i want to respect tradition or not. you would think not should be easier, create your own rules, it's ok if you break them, you could make up new ones.. something about tradition makes me feel like i've broken the rules before i've touched the surface. these various stones that are considered "modern", the earth's insides & outs have changed thru the ages, creating these specimens along the way in order to treat the issues/ dis-ease of today & tomorrow. this is very beautiful and feels similar to what tradition evolves into.
