U is for Untied, and United
UNTIED is like my shoelaces, too often, ready for someone to step on them and cause me to fall.
UNITED suggests things working together, for a common goal.
UNTIED means, literally, at loose ends.
UNITED is strong; you might be able to break one stick, but bundled together, they are nearly UNBREAKABLE.
UNTIED suggests a rootlessness.
UNITED suggests connection.
And UNITED is what this team of participants and visitors have become, lo these seven years. This is an exercise where doing it alone is UNSUSTAINABLE, but working together creates mutual UNDERSTANDING, which is what we need more of in this UNIVERSE.
