[snip] It's a very moving story. I've heard great stories about the origin of, say, the rain, the thunder, the bear, but never about the poor simple strawberries. I'm beginning to translate it into Drasele'q but it's gonna take a while. And I have to think of a nice word for "strawberry"! --Pablo Flores
