Reach into the rolling surge of a frozen river.

Pull out a gray stone - a smooth, banded oval about the size of your fist.

Put it in the oven for an hour.

Sit very, very still while it warms up.

Swallow it.

Push the stone down into your gut.

Feel it radiate hot weight and hushed light for a day and a night.

Do whatever you do, but now do it with heat and weight and light.

Don't forget to sit again tomorrow.


  1. Hey, nobody teach you to be careful what you put in your mouth! :) After the warm/hot rock, next we can swallow all the water in the Ganges river! :)


  2. Nice. I'm still working on the rock but I've got my eye on the Ganges :)
