Language is never static–it’s an organism that continually evolves, reinvents itself, loops back upon itself, ties itself in knots and then unravels those knots which is why we love the concept of two mentors in each workshop, to demonstrate there is more than one answer to most language questions. Though language defies mastery, it loves those who strive for it─whether the apprentice is ten, twenty, forty or sixty years into it. And language always shares whatever it has, no matter how little or much. And for those willing to partake of that sharing, an unbreakable bond develops between them and the language.
These mentors have embraced that bonding and the collegial respect that comes with it.
