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.
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.
