An Evening Without Any Big Ideas, New or Old
We are waiting to hear news of two friends in the hospital in Traverse City, both post-surgical, and I’m distracting myself with Year of Wonders, by Geraldine Brooks. I found this Charlevoix stone (favosites) far from the beach, close to the bed of geologically much newer rocks (following), the latter so close to being soil soil that they are easily split into layers by freezing, thawing and percussion. Any of these, the fossil rock or the sharp-split layers, would have been polished smooth by waves had they been resting on the Lake Michigan shore.
