5 stones


there's an old story about a boy, who against all odds defeated a seemingly unbeatable opponent. everyone thought he was crazy. no one advised him to jump into this fight. in fact...everyone watching assumed that this unfavorable collision would certainly result in the boys death. but in the end, the boy defeated his foe.

sometimes, things don't make sense. situations. opportunities. hurdles. you may not be able to see a way around, or how in the world you can emerge victorious...and yet, you can't deny something divine in the intersection of you and your giant.

do you run? do you devise a plan?

sometimes...the seemingly unattainable is possible...you may just need that one smooth stone.

I'm kinda speechless. Stumped. Why did I decide to reconnect with humanity today??? Thanks for this post.

And for the record... I can't handle a week's worth of your blogs in one sitting. I can't allow this to happen again. I'm wiped.
