The idea belongs both to time and to place;
for where one is shapes a fundamental relationship
between self and land that, in turn,
leads to a particular way of  formulating that relationship
in language
[or creActivity]
that corresponds to the matching of self and place.
Such correspondence may reach through time to take into account
how someone else used language
[or creActivity] in similar circumstances
and therefore, the forms by which language
[or creActivity]
is preserved through time
become the means of contact between persons
responding similarly to place and circumstance
