This is such a wonderful story, with a profound message. I like the fact that you never forced the ring to fit your finger and your reasoning behind it - what a great way to walk through the world.

Thank you for writing the story of this ring again! Circles and cycles of being hidden/lost and being brought to the light again! I had forgotten about the Sisters of the Forest epic mudpit! That legend lived on through many consecutive years of summer camps… the girls refused to let it die.

I love how you refuse to tape this ring to your finger, but to trust so deeply in what comes around again.

And yes, to Garlic!! Hallelujah!
