QOTM: Vision

“What was so perplexing to me was the way Grandfather [Stalking Wolf] would find a fossil. He didn’t have to lie on his belly and search for hours as we did. Instead, he would walk right over to a stone and pick it up. It was as if he saw the stone from many feet away and knew right where to go. What was most exasperating was that he would always find the most beautiful and whole fossil, one that could easily become our most prized piece…

Sheepishly, I asked Grandfather what he did to always find such beautiful fossils.  He smiled at me knowingly and said, ‘The stones simply tell me where the best are to be found.'”

— Tom Brown Jr., Grandfather
