An extra special thank you to the First Nations people from who I learned about harmony, family and the love and respect of Mother Earth and Father Sky by which all beings make their existence.

And to those friends and family without who I wouldn’t have made it this far, your kindness is most graciously appreciated: Mom, Dad, Martin, John, Cathy, Frank, Maria, Al, Robby, Clare, Daniel, Peanut, Angel, Lawrence, Kelly, Dion, Geoff, Marie, Stacy, Greg, Karen, Wally, David, Nestor, Michel, Joseph, Robert, Doug, Patrick, Chris, Mike, Glen, Randy, Konstantin, Jeremias and Jakob to name but a few….

And, last but not least, a special thank you to my addiction without which I would not have met such wonderful people, had so many valuable experiences and learned so many valuable lessons about life, living, loving and the nature of human existence in all its profundity.

Let all final judgments about good and bad be placed in the hands of their Creator, for He/She/It knows far more about their true design and purpose than any human will ever know.
