PRAYER TO THE MOUNTAIN SPIRIT
from the Navajo

Lord of the Mountain,
reared within the mountain,
young man, chieftain,
hear a young man’s prayer!

Hear a prayer for cleanness,
Keeper of the strong Rain,
drumming on the mountain,
Lord of the small Rain,
that restores the earth in newness,
Keeper of the clean Rain,
hear a prayer for wholeness.

Young man, chieftain,
hear a prayer for fleetness!
Keeper of the Deer’s Way,
reared among the eagles,
clear my feet of slothness.
Keeper of the Paths of Men,
hear a prayer for straightness,
hear a prayer for courage.

Lord of the thin Peaks,
reared amid the thunders,
Keeper of the Headlands,
holding up the harvest,
Keeper of the strong Rocks,
hear a prayer for staunchness,
young man, chieftain,
spirit of the mountain!

“The climate change is the biggest problem of our time.
And a massive opportunity for the person who solve it.”

 

“Der Klimawandel ist das grösste Problem unserer Zeit.
Und eine riesige Chance für den, der es löst.”

Hunde-Schilder an einer Scheune im Kanton Appenzell, Schweiz.
Links (Italienisch): “Provinz von Siena – Jagdverbot – Wiederbesiedlungs- und Fanggebiet”
Rechts (Griechisch): “Achtung Hund” (“προσοχη σκυλοσ”)

“Divieto di caccia” heisst also nicht das, was ich zuerst vermutete…
