Stones Talk.

I just finished a fairly good book by an author that I have come to associate with surprising insight.  The Lives of Rocks, by Rick Bass.  In his words I have seen him transform from an geologist, to an artists, to an activist back to an artist again.  This particular book is a compilation of short stories, some haunting, some humorous, some depressing… but all the time maintain a style all to his own.  Mr. Bass resides in the upper north west corner of Montana and little chunk of the world called Yaak Valley.  It might be worth flipping through next time you are at your local book store.

Another element of his work that I look forward to are the cover illustration by Russell Chatham.
