Late this afternoon I walked the old river trail-- perfect 72 degrees and sunny with cool breeze and very few bugs. I practically crawled through a side path that led to the fence line where I could see in the distance a line of sheep in deep grass in front of the white barn. Further down the trail another side path took me to the water's edge where someone had made a modest but pretty little cairn; and then I found some rocks that reminded me of Zuni totems: one looked like two Corn Maidens, a second was a perfectly teardrop-shaped rock-- not a totem, but still-- and the third, over on the bottom right, looks exactly like a fish. I brought these three home to clean and polish a bit. The fish even has an eye and gill marks on both sides of the flat stone.
