• Letter 1
    To the princess of the elephants,
    I disappeared exactly one year ago. On that day I received a letter. It called me back to the place where my life with the elephants began
    Please forgive me, for the silence between us has been unbroken for one year.
    I will never be more of myself than in these letters.
    They are my maps of the bird path, and they are all that I know to be true.
