Living Rock

~ Less than a min read

So much of the mineral side of this planet hasn’t yet had a chance to experience itself biologically. Entire oceans of molten lava have yet to pour out of the Earth’s core onto its surface, then to cool down, then to solidify into rock, and then – over billions of years – to be eventually eroded by wind into the fine mineral dust that may or may not one day become incorporated into some conscious life-form that will look at its own bones on an X-ray and say “Wow!”

What a privilege to be this living rock that I am.


What category shall I file this post under?

- “Incarnation,” I guess.
