Gathering Moss, Robin Wall Kimmerer
Gathering Moss, Robin Wall Kimmerer

The rocks are beyond slow, beyond strong, and yet yielding to a soft green breath as powerful as a glacier, the mosses wearing away their surfaces, grain by grain bringing them slowely back to sand. there is an ancient conversations going on between mosses an rocks, poetry to be sure. About light and shadow and the drift of continents. This is what has been called the "dialectic of moss on stone - an interface of immensity and minuteness, of past and present, softness and hardness, stillness and vibrancy, yin and yang" Shchenk H, Moss Gardening.
