For Lily's sake, Barr can't snap back at them, or threaten to find a new camp; Lily
needs this family to show her how to be a Lakewalker, and to nurture her spirit.
He needs to be patient, he needs to accept all the criticism, and let his family get
used to the idea of Lily. For her sake, he just has to take it instead of 'slithering out'
like he used to do.

Barr just grew up.


Micki: Nice. I'd like to look at it from a slightly different angle. Barr grew up while
patrolling, but there's a tendency to regress back to childhood when back in 
the loving, teasing arms of family. A person can find it easy to fall back into 
old, not-great patterns of dealing with people. Barr just can't afford that luxury
right now.
