Amazing Discovery

Here it is! The stone that didn't roll. It is hidden in a quiet nook of a lazy stream near Tillamook, Or; the very stone that gave rise to the famous proverb. And its true what they say--The stone that did not roll gathered a heap of moss. It is rich in hoary moss.

The proverb suggest that it is a good thing not to roll--to sit and gather moss.

Well judge for yourself! This stone, rich as it is in moss is BORING. It has lived a boring life. It is self absorbed, fat, unloved. It is dying and doesn't know it. It has been nowhere, seen nothing, risk nothing. We can only pity it. We are not impressed by its load of moss.

So half the quest is over. I'll now go find and photograph the ROLLING stone; the one that gathers no moss.

No, not that rolling stone.

Nor these, though they are sliding stones in Death Valley, but that's not it either. When I find the origional "rolling stone", I expect it to be lovely, smoothe, charming, wise for all its travels, but moss poor. If you find it before I do, e-mail a photo to me.
