Bon Voyage

Bon Voyage
I want it to be clear that the I in this book is I. 
I do not subscribe to any theory no matter how 
beautifully arrayed in religious verbiage.

I have read that I am that I am, and that is good 
enough for me.

Bon voyage, sombreros! We shall meet at some dawn 
or some dusk.
Alan Jackson
