Words Our Flesh

Sit here with me.I want to tell you the stories of your ancestors.

 

Make sure you are comfortable– this is a long story and it must be told slowly, exactly as it was given.

 

This story goes back a long, long way and I will tell it to you the way it was told to me.

 

You must learn to tell it too. Some of it is heroic, Some of it is sad. Some of it is funny, some hard to hear.

 

Once told this story will explain you.

 

We have told this story to our children from the beginning of time. You must tell it to your children. Don’t leave anything out.

 

Every word the same. That’s how we call the old ones back to live with us forever.
