"Little boys are like doors into the impossible. Like when you're playin' games.When you're playin' a game of make-believe, are you still you? Or are you a spy? Or a cowboy? Or a knight? Who are you when you're playin' those games? And what do you think you're doin' when you play those games? You're telling another story."

It is not customary to acknowledge the trees themselves, though their commitment is total."
