"The wisdom of rocks": Really? After all, "dumb as a box of rocks" is a common expression. Yet rocks surround us. They've been here far longer than we have and will continue to exist long after we're gone. When I was descending Hawkins Pass in the center of Oregon's Wallowa Mountains I looked around at the massive granite peaks, walls and boulders. I thought of the long cycles of years, the geologic and climatic changes these rocks had seen and the phrase came into my mind. Early humans often lived in natural rock shelters. Monks and hermits traditionally sought refuge in rock caves, and rock formations were often venerated as religious shrines. We don't think of rocks as sentient, but they bear the imprint of events that occurred over the long years of their existence. The stories embedded in rocks are there for us if we are willing to pay attention. Rich Halley December 2013 Portland, Oregon.
