From the introductory "Author's Note":
"I still think that the power of the word is the best medium to inform and entertain the minds of our youngsters." (pg x)
"After a while, Trufa dozed off. This wasn't sleep but a strange languor. Trufa awoke and to her amazement found that she was no longer hanging on the tree. The wind had blown her down while she slept. This was different from the way she used to feel when she awoke on the tree with the sunrise. All her fears and anxieties had now vanished. The awakening also brought with it an awareness she had never felt before. She knew now that she wasn't just a leaf that depended on every whim of the wind, but that she was part of the universe. She was no longer small or weak or transient, but part of eternity."
['Ole & Trufa: A Story of Two Leaves' (pg 253)]
