Your rendition that night, in your Californian Dude accent, recounting your awesome experience had me in convulsive laughter, even more so when it came to light that you really had been so heroic. I recall that night clearly, I was sitting on our sleeping bags looking at the amazing space we had created and watching you walk back for the helmets. Feeling a little apprehensive about what you were about to do, I prayed for you to be safe. Then seeing you pass again, and saying you did not need the helmets, I felt a sense of relief.

You are a gift in my life Duncan and I count you as one of my blessings. It's fun for me to know I can feel that way and not have to agree with all you write or say." — Trish (Thousand Oaks, California, USA)

"Go!" — Kitty (Boston, Massachusetts, USA)

"I really liked your referring to the trees as a crowd of lichen encrusted psychoanalysts. The imagery is great and brought a smile to my face. I also like this line: 'They listened benevolently as my crazed form spiraled past them in a fit of sweat and tears, the little boy in me tumbling to an empty house that was now his home.' It's very human, comforting, confusing, mixed emotions, lonely, I loved it." — John (Sacramento, California, USA)


"I just want to thank you for your including me in your process. When I first saw the volume of your mails I thought, wow, the man is on fire with his growing process. Now I think you are approaching insights that can only come by staying the path for oneself with the kind of fortitude you have been living. I admire it and wish to tell you that I love you for your vulnerability, and your bravery, and your little boy inside as well.
