We know that weather systems, economies, cultures, and life itself are examples of complex systems
meaning interconnected (think of the story about the butterfly flapping its wings in Tokyo
and causing a hurricane in New York)…and yet
we continue to argue (and apparently to believe)
that we can change, alter, redefine, rewrite, redraw, and/or recreate
identities, relationships, defining characteristics…boundaries in general
and yet nothing will change.
Why do we believe this?
This is my governing concept: that boundaries matter
that every time we change a boundary, we change the world
that boundary changes can be good or bad – depending on whether
the change is in accordance with the realities of
honesty, ethics, and integrity.
