Roses, Knots and Systems
“Do we suppose that all she knows is that a rose is a rose is a rose is a rose?” Gertrude Stein
In the same way that a rose is a rose, a system is a system. A relationship, a family, a community, and organisations are all life-like-systems, each populated by people, 'stand alone', living systems.
A healthy system is sustainable because individuals value themselves, trust the other, honouring the diversity that forges the unity of their connection.
