"An idea no longer shrouded in mist, through wave or ether comes to me, like a star from high up in the skies, or a pearl from the bottom of the sea." - Victor Hugo (Les rayons et les ombres)
Very true Gwilym. They are the oldest things on the planet. Your stone has a face on it too - which adds to the feeling. Good to be back reading your blog.
Thanks Pat. There's an old saying that the stone from the top of the mountain will end up at the bottom of the mountain and the stone from the bottom will end up on the top. This stone was neither up nor down as with the grand old duke of york's 10,000 men ;), but the skull shape is intriguing. It's meaning lies in its being a stone head but it would have no meaning if we weren't here to observe its slow relentless journey, either up or down, and note its resemblance to ourselves and our actions. John, many thanks!
