On 12-1-12, Myotai Sensei held a journal-writing workshop at the Japan Society. We all received rocks, and mine had a special feature: it has five dimples in it that look as if they were made by human fingernails! It’s as if — a few million years ago — someone made their imprint in the black mud.
This is actually a small rock (1-3/8″ x 1-1/4″), but it is many-faceted. In fact, it has eight sides of varying sizes. And each “fingernail print” is accompanied by a scratch of a glacial type, although god(dess) knows what actually made these.
Plus, it’s as smooth as baby skin to the touch.
I love my new rock!!
