“I realized as our group linked back to D'ni, that we should not restore the city as we had planned. The once magnificent buildings lay in ruin; a testament to the hatred that had comsumed them. Too many people had fallen victim to that hate; to the prejudice and greed from which it sprang.
     “Gazing out across the cavern, I decided to write another age. One that would help the D'ni survivors begin again, free from the tragedies of their past. So, with my wife, Catherine, supporting me, I put aside that past to write a future.
     “Over a year has gone by since I finished writing Releeshahn. I have a new daughter, whom I hope will some day link to the age with me. And as I imagine Yeesha meeting the D'ni... those brave men and women who are building a new life for themselves... I realize that I have been given another chance as well. A chance to learn from my mistakes, and leave the past behind me... once and for all.” --Atrus
