Still Waiting

Archaic mano

An Archaic mano, or hand grinding stone, begins its next few thousand years in the sand of a hearth. Time and weather have reduced the charcoal of ancient campfires to a shadow in the soil.

  1. I attempted to leave a comment, but received a response “this comment cannot be posted”. I wanted to say that I read about dinosaur gastroliths found a thousand miles from their geologic source. They resembled this mano, because they were used for a similar purpose. Worn stones can tell such a story if you have the imagination to listen. Thank you for a lovely post.
