Re: Shall We Go Bearing Gifts?
The first thing that comes to mind would be a small statue of the
shinto farming god. Remember in one of the books when he talks about
the shinto farming god's strange tool that everyone thought was
something else when it turns it out it was a musical instrument for
playing while letting nature grow the food.
I can't remember more off hand, but that's my vote.
Good idea Bob, as usual.
