The Purpose
(purpose is central to a good life)

  Improvisation is at the core of Thuja's musical energy,
it's essence is audacious and humble,
daring but respectful, inviting and enticing,
like Life,
like the Tree of Life,
each moment is different, each moment is unusual,
each moment is familiar, each moment is uncovered,
each moment is new.

Life constantly improvises itself,
we often try box it in,
but it evades us.

Remember to improvise,
in life
and with life.
So that one day,
you might be able
to dance with it,
before it slips away!
