    Excerpt from Steeplejack, Vol. 1

    The avowals of a Steeplejack! Why shouldn't a steeplejack make avowals? It is a dangerous occupa tion and, Oddly enough, one in which the higher you mount the lower you fall, socially. Yet a steeplejack, humble as is his calling, may be a dreamer Of daring dreams, a poet, even a hero. I, who write these words, am no poet, but I have been a steeplejack. I have climbed to the very top of many steeples the world over, and dreamed like the rest Of my fellow beings the dreams that accompany the promenade of pure blood through young arteries, and now after a half century, I shall re port these dreams and their awakenings; for the differ ence between the dream-world and what we are pleased to call reality is something which no poet, philosopher, or psychologist has yet explained. Whether we dream at night when our body vegetates, or our dreams over¿ow into our waking hours does not much matter. To dream is to exist. I dream therefore I am, might be the form ula of a second Descartes. And who enjoys loftier dreams than a steeplejack? But alas! He must always return to earth, else perish aloft from the cold.
