The Toadstone

כ' תשרי התשס"ט

Walking outside in the sunshine on this beautiful autumn day, I saw a toadstool patch had sprung up right in the middle of the yard. The faeries are smiling with me. It's time to designate my ninth shaman stone.

A simple grey river stone I found near a lake in the woods recently, it's a rather plain and ugly rock to the common senses. Yet, it elegantly represents the beautiful within the homely, simple truth within a maze of illusion, and the extraordinary within the ordinary.

The ninth shaman stone, represented by the Toad spirit, a Guardian of the Land it inhabits, is called a toadstone and calls us to see beyond the obvious.
