Hail, oh brilliant ones!
The rising sun warms the great good Earth and the song of the wild rings in our ears. Birds nesting and singing their love songs. Trees blossoming and the early shoots of flowers poking their heads up high. Warm us , great good Earth. Fill our bodies with sunshine and goodness and we will praise you with our gladness, our beauty, our vibrant colours, our fragrance and our being. The world fills with the busyness of life. With splendor and grandeur the planet awakens to the heat of the sun and the tiny insects stir in their nests and start the daily task of survival.
Nourish us, oh great planet, for we are the necessary, the tiny, often dismissed ones. The work of our labour is a workforce of love.
Sweet nectar! The pollinators thrive in a land of such plenty, and flowers, fruit, vegetables and other plants, rise and shine to capture the attention of these healthful species. Hardworking bees and dainty butterflies fill the air in pursuit of their own life’s work. Thy will be done!
This is the day that saves us. A day to plant your harvest and to rejoice in the new season of springtime. A day where the birds are singing and nesting, when the world is warming to spring fever and the plants proclaim that the soil is rich and that they will grow and thrive. This was the kind of day, in the kind of world, that greeted the colonialists from France. A day when the Earth tossed off it’s winter coat and revealed the lush green foliage beneath.

This is the kind of world where dreams can flow. A promise of hopes fulfilled. Energized and refreshed, the land calls to the new comers. Fulfill your dreams on this great land, prepare the soil for planting and share this world with it’s inhabitants. The dream of a colony can be a reality. It can exist!
The reality for all of us, is that food is one of the most important tasks of the day. We must eat. The soil must be prepared and tended, the seeds must be sown and the garden must be cared for. Toil and work, dig in the dirt, a colony is an immense task of building shelter and community.
Hail, almighty one! was the call to the king. We have landed. Your loyal subjects will do our duty to our king and your schemes of riches, wealth, abundance, opulence, whatever we can achieve, will all go to the glory of France. You are the great mastermind of cunning and we will strive to fulfill your desire.
So now, the colonialists have set foot on the land and a place to construct their dwellings has been chosen. Build your shelter, bring in your supplies. Food and equipment to start the new life. From grand notions and great inspiration, come deeds of immense proportions. A small group of people, with skills and endurance, have been called by their leader to be champions of courage and self sufficiency.
So, all of you bravehearts, look to the colony of France. There, out in the new world is a small group of people, whose destiny has called them, to live to the adventure of this brave new day.
