It may only be a small storm yet a successful outcome is imminent. In this world I greet my oldest survivor — the earth. Walk in the valley of our ancestors, learn of the history, and marvel at the beauty. A little axe, when well used, brings lots of food. Survival is the treasured goal. Don’t lean on your fellow men — theirs is an ever moving support. Let us keep close together, not far apart. When one chief falls, another one rises. Boast during the day; be humble at night. Only the foolish visit the land of the cannibals.
