Lead and follow, follow and leadů

I offer my partner one end of the jo and he moves to take it. Following his lead, I lead him along the path he has chosen keeping the jo just out of his reach. I never try to force a direction on him; it's enough to simply let him decide where he wants to go as he tries to grab the end of the staff. Changing directions in response to him I may move my hands to the other end of the jo and offer him the end I have just relinquished. On we go, continuously shaping the pattern into randomly varying simple and complex weaves, forming a threefold tableau of interconnected energies. If he does manage to grab the jo he just lets go and we continue as before.
