stone in the sand

A friend of mine who had great trouble with her mind told me once that she had brought a stone into her apartment, and when she felt her mind going, she would concentrate on the stone. She said, “There is a fierce sanity in stone.” -John O’Donohue, To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings

  1. Oh, I love this prompt and the image. I agree with the concept of stones having a fierce sanity and a life-saving solidity. I collect rocks everywhere I go and always have a few in the bottom of my purse or backpack. Also a huge John O’Donohue fan.
