We are a people driven by both custom and tradition unlike any other people, something we take great pride in. Some of you may have noticed, for example, that those names and dates from the original writers who contributed to the keeper’s collection, as well as those from my colleagues, are scanty at best. Well, they have been omitted and less emphasized on purpose. I too am guilty of this and can tell you readers that we feel no remorse in doing so. There is no need for you to have access to that kind of information yet, not when responsibility and prudence still eludes your fingers and thoughts. Neither are we willing to leave such clues in the hands of those blessed enough to be invited and vouched for into this community, despite their mundane backgrounds, at this period in time. It will take some study and proven loyalty for us to say otherwise. Keep this in mind and waste little time in wondering about how you can go about obtaining such information. What you should spend far more time on is directing your gaze to intensifying your studies-I know none of you are ignorant to the fact that scholarship is paramount here.I ask that you concentrate your efforts on extrapolating what you can from what the others provided, to meditate on the message behind our words, to etch the words into your actions once you understand, and to embrace the tremendous gift you have been given after all is said and done. Do this with diligence and consistency, and mark my words, the world within and without will tremble at your rich and abundant hand. You more than likely, will not be able conceive of what I speak of now, but you will in due time, the call of the magi: the eternal whisper of the “Fifth Coast” beckons for it.
