Rules of the Gift

Lovers must not, like usurers, live for themselves alone. They must finally turn from their gaze at one another back toward the community. - Wendell Berry

Within a year and a day you will pass the gift on to somebody you find along your way who can benefit from receiving it, and that person receives the bowl with the understanding that they will, within a year and a day pass it on to somebody in need, and on and on. 

The gift moves in a wide circle, nothing must ever be received in direct exchange for the gift, we give to those who can benefit in the understanding that when we find ourselves in need the gift will find us.
