This song is dedicated to the Physicist/Author, David Peat. David’s life has been devoted to the study of creativity and spontaneity, about which he has written a number of books. Originally from England, he moved his family to the small Hill-town of Pari, Italy where he started a Creativity Learning Center.

During visits to Pari we'd pick up his latest text. We combined new inspirations from David’s work with our own long-term interest in Creativity/Spontaneity. We blended in a bit of the amazing work of Carl Jung. It was an engaging time, filled with much learning for us.

Rather than try to manage Life, we decided to loosen our control (or the illusion of it) and let things flow in a more “natural” and “organic” fashion.

Control often appears as if we have everything in order, our “ducks in a row." Interpreting this as the opposite of spontaneity, we decided to watch as Life unfolded in a more natural way, going with the flow, trusting the process.

You can find the original vocal version of this song at our "Uncommon Promise" site:
