I believe our singular highest ambition and sense of positive accomplishment will be in proportion to our efforts to help other things flourish and be as they are and can become; whether music, ideas, activities, people, native plants and animals, environmental and geological formations,... so long as these things don't oppress the potential for other things to flourish and be as they are and can become.
