April 2, 2014 - Moss Grows Fat

Not only do trees grow right out from rock ledge here in Maine, but moss also grows fat on a rolling stone.  Well, maybe not rolling.  As you can see, this rock is completely alive.  It sports not only trees, but many clumps of moss growing all over it.  They are alive and well, even all the way through the winter.  How can this be?  Life never stops.  It can't stop.  You have to get cleverer to notice it in the winter, of course, but it's still there.  Now that Spring has come, it will become obvious, but don't forget that even on the darkest and coldest of days, everything around you is still alive.  Everything.  Even a rock.  You just have to adjust your eyes.  And speaking of adjusting your eyes, I think it's blatantly obvious that this rock covers another fairy den.  You'd have to be blind not to see that wide opening at the bottom.  The fairies in this part of the world are so bold.
