The stone is a piece of the living rock

We can read Stone Soup all-the-while ignoring the stone. It can seem a mere place-holder, a no-thing.

It’s not. The stone is a stone. The stone, all stones, any stone is a fragment of the living rock.

What does that mean? What is a living rock?

We’re standing on it. It’s so big, so prominent, so significant it is easily overlooked. The rock is how we contact the earth in its most fundamental, foundational aspect. Through the earth, rock connects us to everything….

The traveler is not bringing nothing, no-thing. He brings everything in the form of a stone, a piece of the living rock.
