A naturally relaxing look at surface tension

What could be more soothing than contemplating wet, water-smoothed stones?

We’ll probably never know but perhaps arranging the stones on top of a laneway electrical cabinet, while the rain poured down Monday night (February 15), was more than soothing for the person who took the time to do it.

Take some stones, Zen just add water

Sitting in their thin pool of water, this assemblage of small stones looked ordinary enough from a distance.

But close up you can see how the glimmering surface water surrounds, encases and almost cradles the stones. The effect is to blend the opposites of rock and water into a seamless and balanced unity.

All very natural and very satisfying, I thought. Click the image to enlarge them.
