And so I continue my account, while I wait for a summons from the Shaman.

My Childhood, Chapter Two,

As I recall it, when the Hunters Moon was down we lived much as our neighbours must have done. I remember the sleds and the sleighs, reindeer and even the occasional dogs and horses.

Our houses were wooden but there was the rare motorised vehicle, even then – and how those motors stank! Then as now, moose sometimes walked the roads as though they owned them, Bears were worse – and that I shall never forget.

I remember bearded men, and women dressed in so many layers of clothing that they showed little shape. I remember faces chapped red with cold, but often lined with laughter, and hands as hard as bone from unrelenting work.

Usually, I heard the laughter as I watched the playing children, as though I were the audience to a show in which I had no part. With no mother and no siblings I might have been apart even had I not been already marked. As it was, I was almost shunned.
