Loyd: “It has to do with keeping things in balance. It’s like the spirits have made a deal with us. We’re on our own. The spirits have been good enough to let us live here and use the utilities, and we’re saying: We know how nice you’re being. We appreciate the rain, we appreciate the sun, we appreciate the deer we took. Sorry if we messed up anything. You’ve gone to a lot of trouble, and we’ll try to be good guests.” Codi: “Like a note you’d send somebody after you’d stayed in their house?” Loyd: “Exactly like that. ‘Thanks for letting me sleep on your couch. I took some beer out of the refrigerator, and I broke a coffee cup. Sorry, I hope it wasn’t your favorite one.'”
Barbara Kingsolver, Animal Dreams
