Lucky Rock

IMG_9466

I found this small, preternaturally smooth rock at Back Beach in Bernard, Maine several years ago. I imagine it as a dolphin or a person meditating, arms tucked, serene. The rock is self-contained. It has everything it needs. Its inward smile implies a secret. This insular stone was once part of something bigger than itself and may be again. It is the lucky rock I always hoped to find. And did.

It’s the inspiration for my main character, Grace Ann Ringer.
