Rock of Ages eBook (epub – PC, Mac, iBooks)
When you think that this rock is 4.03 billion years old, then all human civilization, everything we’ve thought and done, it’s just nothing. It’s overwhelming to think that, in the grand scheme of things, we’re insignificant. At the same time, it brings out an ephemeral kind of experience. Life is valuable because it’s so brief.
Rock of Ages weaves a web that links myth, science and geology with personal experience. As Carolyn Pogue returns to the centre – to the oldest rock in the world – she draws us to the depths of time, then flings us to the stars and healing energies. The rock blesses those who stop to heed its story.
