"Yeah. And every person thinks their Angel is just their shadow, and every Angel in the Garden World thinks their person is just their shadow."
"Hold on a minute! Garden World?" What's this about a Garden World?"
"Sure, the Garden World--where the Garden Angels live. We live in our world and they live in theirs. But if we learn the right things and they learn the right things, then finally we get to be each other's friend and go back and forth to both worlds wide awake forever, which is more fun than you can shake a stick at."
