(oops - these notes weren't meant to be published - they're for an upcoming podcast; d'oh!)

Preserve is rendered pol (keep) and comes from the Hebrew word (used more than 400 times) shamar, with the idea of a hedge, a fence to protect one. You might also use the Klingon word "shield" (yoD) or "forcefield" (botjan).

Oh, ok.....that explains why in the Firebird trilogy the spiritual leaders were called Shamars......I never knew!

oops - that was - WILL BE - part of an upcoming podcast (actually a quote from an earlier one:) ; I didn't mean to publish it yet, but accidently must have hit the wrong button on blogger.
