Tender is the mind. Others shape us and frame, they cultivate. Our thinking builds upon the conduct of others. Wit is our craft. We overcome the contours of our natural corpus, and emerge. Our affection for one another allows us to contemplate. We remain and operate by interplay. The new outgrows the other.
