Saint West the betta fish, for letting us hold his bowl on this album cover;
Jacob Kuppermann (5w6), for letting us steal his voice and for being a steadfast supporter of our wacky ventures, (as well as the best partner a person [Jade] could ask for);
Keila Diehl, phenomenal piano teacher who inspired Davis' lifelong love for music;
Professor Bruce Smith, for teaching us how to think about sound;
Dylan DeLuca, for being both the first AND the second (and hopefully not the last!) person to host a Deathless Gods show;
Don Richard Riso and Ross Hudson, whose book "The Wisdom of the Enneagram" sparked this whole fascination;
Jade's mom (9w8), who showed Jade "The Wisdom of the Enneagram," and who is also the best mom ever;
