Vaskal, still on his side and looking at the various snow crystals, wondered what these new discoveries really meant to him. He had always considered knowledge to be an important part of his time here in this life, but he never had really considered knowledge acquisition to be part of his trips up the mountain. Now that he was where he was, he was trying to figure out what other kinds of knowledge he had acquired on his times coming up the mountain. Had he gained other knowledge in coming up the mountain? How would he figure it out? What other kind of knowledge could he have gained? Weren’t these trips just for the joy of it?

Seasonally, of course, they were able to understand that there were different times of the year where different weather patterns were expected, but when there were times during the year that the weather didn’t obey the ‘laws’ that they thought the weather was supposed to act within, it was quite uneasy making.”

When Shnobi (pronounced shhno-bee) was a young girl, her great-grandparents would always tell her about the wiles of the mosquito. They would describe the body of the insect in great detail and go into a fantastical tale about just how important mosquitoes were to the health of the ecosystems they thrived in. Moreover, her great-grandmother used to talk about the healing power of mosquitoes. Shnobi was not disillusioned by the same sorts of messages that had been spread long before her time. In fact, Shnobi was fortunate to have great-grandparents that let her explore the boundlessness of her own mind.
