March 29, 2014 - An Unlikely Table

When the glaciers swept through this land many thousands of years ago, they left some of the strangest rock formations strewn about.  Here and there are the most unlikely natural coincidences.  This very large rock weighing several hundred pounds at least sits poised precariously and yet indiscreetly on a series of smaller rocks as if it were somehow placed there deliberately.  The top is fairly flat and conducive to all manner of work, although it is already heavily covered with moss.  Someday the woods will reclaim this rock entirely.  Until that time, the Good Folk of the woods tell me that this handsome table was set up in a most marvelously gleaming hall, with other enchanting rooms around the hall and a castle around the rooms.  They say you can see it all still if you look at it in just the right light.  I am hesitant to argue.
