This story is about a boy who goes north and basically creates the world. He creates the sun, and the flowers. He creates the moon, and the stars. He talks about how he feels like he missed his childhood, but all of this was so much greater. I think the theme of this story is that happiness trumps all. The beautiful earth he created is much better than the childhood he would have had. Some of the cultural items mentioned in this story is the capital, and how he travels north to the mountains. They also refer the child to god.
