The Newts of Treflach

Newts of Treflach

The inscription...

Sol et luna, cedrus et floseulos, aquila et posser, spectaculum parum diverstitatum et inaequlitatum innumerarum significat, nullam e creaturis sibi ipsi sufficere

... was written many centuries ago and roughly translated means:

The sun and the moon, the cedar and the little flower, the eagle and the sparrow, the spectacle of their countless diversities and inequalities tell us that no creature is self-sufficient

The little fella in the picture hanging on for dear life on the log of wood thrives in Treflach in certain locations because of the way the land is farmed/loved.  The farmer thrives because society appreciates his stewardship of the land that also produces food.  Society thrives by eating said food which is good for mind and body.  The cycle of life that was known to the Latin tongue is alive in Treflach today.
