Little Fayoumis needs a better definition of the word than the half-assed one that I was able to try to get across when he asked. (That same book with the Buddha.) I said it was what people believed about stuff, like the Summerlands, and different ways they had of thinking about the world, and rules for saying what's right and what's not besides what the government says.

Really, I need a better definition for him, because it's a confusing subject for adults to get their minds around.

He's in the "Please, give me words" stage now, just soaking them up, and asking what unfamilar ones are when I read them.
Gone away, gone ahead,
Echoes roll unanswered.
Empty, open, dusty, dead.
Why have all the Weyrfolk fled?

Where have dragons gone together
Leaving weyrs to wind and weather,
Setting herdbeasts free of tether;
Gone, our safeguards, gone, but whither?

Have they flown to some new weyr
Where cruel Threads some others fear?
Are they worlds away from here?
Why, oh why the empty weyr?
