In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"Once upon a time in a deep pine forest dwelled a solitary wisp - a creature no higher than tansy or thistle - who hovered and wandered between the trees as moths do in quiet, unobtrusive flutters. She flew without shadow in a world entirely of shade, and she flew wingless, trailing sheens of gossamer - rising on the slightest breeze as dandelion and milkweed seeds fluff away in the meadows beyond forests."
