After writing a story on the prospect of suicide, wonderous things start to happen. Just in time love finds its way. And he is happy, until that one fateful day...
I want to thank the French philosopher and theologian Jacques Ellul and Terrence Malick, whose film the Tree of Life was an important source of inspiration. Also, I owe a lot to the man who showed me Dangave, the Hopi Life Plan, engraved in a rock in Hopi nation. The great love of my life always stood by me. Just like my dogs, who were mysterious guides on the long, long journey home.
