This story is about freedom: the freedom of choice, the freedom to learn, and the freedom to dream. The backdrop of the story is Ojibway mythology with a touch of Zen philosophy thrown in for good measure. The characters are fictitious. The concept is not. This is simply a story of a meeting between a young man and a First Nations medicine man. It is not meant to be anything but (hopefully) entertaining. The idea that the story could ever be remotely true is far fetched, however it is hoped that the ideas presented will be enjoyed and freely interpreted.
