Bravenlea

[BRAY-venn-lee]

Origin

(Bench name)

Definition

Bench commemorating the warlord Nobunaga-Gotari's return from Shirotsumek Hill to Hizurokoro (the gwome he had founded following his near assassination when his ship was swept across what we call the Pacific), where he met Forrest Bess, the painter, who told him of the Bravenleavanne, a culture who believed in good deeds for their own sake—not for reward or for fear of punishment. On the edge of death throughout the crossing, Nobunaga-Gotari recovered only after he scorched the words of prophecy–The Fate of the Clan of Nobunaga–into a massive drift log.
