St. Francis of Assisi, who in his Canticle of All Creatures, saw that everything in the world is connected; fire and water, earth and air, sun and moon. Singing of this unity it is said that he picked up two sticks which he found while sauntering in the woods. He did not possess a musical instrument, but with the two sticks, he pretended that he was playing a violin by rubbing them together as if to create a sound, singing and dancing with joy. Francis knew that the world itself is filled with the seeds of God's love. God's Joy.
