A raindrop has seen the rise and fall of civilizations and survived deserts of ice and sand. However, despite all of her adventures, she has lost the magic of being alive. That is, until a gust of wind—or perhaps a twist of fate—sends her face-to-face with a lowly rock. But what good could possibly come from a conversation with a rock? Turns out, this is no ordinary rock. This particular rock watches the world around him evolve in the most astonishing of ways, and he can almost touch the hand wielding such bewildering and obvious might. From their sudden encounter, two things spark between them: a friendship and a spiritual quest.
In this lighthearted romp through a serious world, the rock and the raindrop explore life from different points of view, and with their combined talents, they discover that what may appear commonplace is in reality an intricate puzzle. With the help of the surrounding forest, they unearth hidden mathematical and philosophical treasures; traces of the spiritual world working quietly behind the scenes. As you follow them on their journey, you're invited to see that which appears ordinary in a new light, to reconsider what's taken for granted, and to challenge the boundaries of your imagination.

About the Author
Thirty years it was I plied my trade as an artist, designing and making custom furniture, the last twenty as proprietor of Dark Horse Design. I found success by using patterns in nature as my guide. There is an amazing precision in their interactions, and they have such an extraordinary range of purpose that to the trained eye they tell us much about the being that created us. And when the day was done I would write about that, for writing is my passion, and now that I’m old, sharing what I’ve learned my desire.
I’ve always been intrigued by the fact that we are fledgling spirits in a decidedly material world. Over the years I’ve found there to be a mosaic of patterns interconnecting the unseen realm of spirit and the visible material world. I soon came to realize that spirit has an interesting form of communication—it speaks to us in a subtle yet definitive manner, quite often in the simplest of ways.
So it was I created this narrative, and did so in a way that is unique on many levels. If perchance you decide to read my story, I hope you enjoy the poetic innovations, for they have been patterned after the elegance so prevalent in nature, and the beauty of the rhythms found therein.
As a philosopher, I would like to share this parting thought, “How could God fulfill His creative potential without the opposite of perfection. It seems the infinite requires that which is finite to pursue the Divine Adventure. And for us, that is the ultimate gift.”
