CREEP, (verb), to move carefully or slowly

Noticing, attending, adjusting, shifting and shuffling are part of the phuplec practice of creep. This practice is based on the process of soil creep where by movement occurs on a particle level and very slowly. Flowers unfurl over a day, trees lengthen over years, the earth moves over millennia. Movement does not need to be visible to be radical.

* PHUPLEC – Pronounced ‘foo-pleck’. PHUPLEC derives from the Proto-Indo-European perfective *bhuH, meaning to become, grow or appear. From this root word comes the English word future, the Latin futūrus (about to be) and esse (to be), the Greek phuō (I grow / become) and phusis (nature), and the Old English bēo (I become, I will be, I am). Phu- is combined with an abbreviated version of the Old English *plecc (pleck or plack) meaning a plot of land, place, spot or patch.
