Tynoly (pronounced tie-no-lee) looked over at his brother playing with the wolves, a lovely sight indeed. His brother thoroughly enjoyed romping in the grass with the wolves and as was evident from what he saw, so did they. The wolves, not interested in chomping down on human flesh, seemed much more civilized, much more interested in maintaining and harbo[u]ring peaceful relations. Tynoly, seeing that his brother certainly didn’t need him to watch, headed towards the wooded area. Upon reaching the first tree, he looked up to examine its height. It was a tall tree.

Today was to be the day. Little did Fidaole (pronounced feh-dow-lee) know that her parents had been waiting for this day for quite some time, but how could she know this when she was still getting used to what it felt like to live inside a body? Fidaole was playing in the grass, while her parents watched from afar. This was how most of Fidaole’s time was spent – exploring. She was allowed the opportunity to do pretty much whatever she wanted and given that she was still a baby, she wasn’t going to go off too far. Nonetheless, her parents were adamant about letting Fidaole do what it was that she wanted to do when she wanted. It was their opinion that Fidaole was not their baby, but just a gift that they were looking after until she was old enough to completely take care of herself.

Up, down, up, down, sideways, under, over, left, right… Many of the people that Vinitia (pronounced vin-ee-sha) had heard about through her great-grandparents were people that were unable to maintain a healthy balance of life. They were, in essence, all over the place. Some people would work 40 hours a week, or more, doing something that they didn’t like because they felt obligated. Vinitia always felt that this was strange. Why would someone do something all week long with about 1/2 of their waking hours, if they didn’t like it?

His mom and dad watched as he explored the natural world around him. Chinwe (pronounced chin-way) would crawl around in the grass as he looked at various plants and insects. His mom and dad were being very intentional in their desire not to interfere with Chinwe’s autonomy. They understood the importance of Chinwe discovering the world around him – on his own – without any influence by mom or dad. This concept was something that was foreign to both of Chinwe’s parents.
