But if we decide to observe their secret lives we will see they move. Maybe not as fast as a snail as they are never in a rush, always pretty relaxed. A stone can be your best friend. Can always be with you, in your pocket, firm and loyal. When you feel lonely you can hold it in your hand and feel the warmth of its heart. As hot as a stone.
