Scene: Hard Places, Soft Spaces

[Begin scene]

Rocks jut up from the ground, varying shades of tan and gray…

Sunlight streams across them, lighting up a face here and there, casting the rest in shadow…

These hard stones gathered here to help slow the erosion from heavy rains…

Blankets of pine needles lie about, filling the space between the rocks, looking almost inviting…

Contrasting not just in color but with the softening of such a hard place…

Life has many such places.

[End scene]
