You’re getting close, though I might also suggest “survival” in the face of conquest and oppression. You haven’t turned up anyone there as a consequence of religious persecution, have you, which in itself is interesting.  

By the way, has Fran said anything to you about our real estate affiliate? The partnership our broker is heading? We’re going to start buying local rental property under his cover. Need to have housing for workers once the mill renovation begins. Keep this under your hat. No need to raise suspicions. Just wanted you to know, in case you hear anything.

Let’s try this, then.

The Celts, for the green, in season.

Vikings, for the stream.

Greeks, for the rocky soil.

Romans, for opportunities to garden, even if only a tiny backyard.

Gauls, for the gray.

Inca – could it be the mountains?

Are you suggesting they weren’t assigned here? I’d always assumed it was for the mill jobs. That was it, wasn’t it?

I’ve been hoping to get away to Boston. Still haven’t done it yet. Seems we keep circling around it.

Hilda wants to go. I said I’d be happy to take her. She agreed. But then she couldn’t wait till I got off work. So she and Clancy hitchhiked off early. They got into a heavy snowstorm, followed by an intense argument. When they came back, they wouldn’t speak directly to each other. I’m afraid this is going to continue for weeks.

Bean Town has to wait.

This authority thing gets tricky, too. The Vikings never seemed to be comfortable with a leader, except going into battle. The Romans looked to patriarchal family. With the Greeks, you have to ask first if its Athens or Sparta. The Celts and the Gauls remain cloaked in mystery. The Inca, however, seem drawn to a Sun King. But it’s terribly dark and cloudy here.
