He watched the woman in the red dress as she picked up a book on ‘crystal magic’ and brought it to the counter to buy it. All the while, he was watching her.. making sure she couldn’t tell he was indeed watching her…
And that was it.. she bought the book and was walking out the door… but as she was leaving he noticed her reflection in the big glass store windows… and she was looking right at him!!.. with a little smirk on her face no less!
“What is that all about?!” he thought…
“Many people do not understand rocks…. and those who understand something.. most mis-understand most”
“Most mis-understand most?! – I don’t understand all this understanding and mis-understanding!!” he thought, half in frustration and half in amusement.
“Pick up that book”
He picks up a book on ‘crystal magic’
“It is just like that but absolutely nothing like that”
“I think I get you…. there is something important there but it is not as explained in these books”
“Perhaps?!” he says laughing… and with that… poof….silence… not the kind of silence in between words spoken… or between thoughts.. but nothing… he felt the rock was gone again.
He thought how very strange this all was.. and how the rock wasn’t even with him, so how could it have just left?
He considered buying the book for a minute then thought : “What am I crazy? I have my own personal rock tutor, I don’t need some other person’s interpretation of this when I can get it straight from the horse’s mouth! – Oh man, I am crazy – listen to myself! And for some reason, I think the rock would find it very funny I called it a horse’s mouth! “
And with that, although very confused, felt very relaxed and a big smile formed and could not be erased from his face.
