I want to thank my husband, who is my north star, who listened to ideas and story lines and gave me articulate, accurate insights into a world of the north woods from his own former professional forestry experiences.

I owe a debt of love and gratitude to my dear friend Anne. Her kind and professional work on the page layout, cover design, and final text edits have given this story a gracefulness that I alone could not have produced.

And lastly, I want to thank you, the readers, for this story is a dance between the ideas I caught floating around and wrote down and what you choose to do with them once you read them. I hope that all of you who have been shaped by a belief in your life, and then who realized that life shaped your beliefs, enjoy this allegory I have written.
