Dear Tony,


Just one criticism: "such as a process" is misleading I think.
Processes are Events. It is the prescription. I would not start with
it. It suggests those two things have priority.
  I would rather start with a poem, a prescription, a report
  (which may not have been written down).

best,

Martin
