Tonkawa Indians believed ghost fires flickered at the top, and they heard weird
creaking and groaning, which geologists now say resulted from the rock's heating by day
and contracting in the cool night....

A conquistador captured by the Tonkawa described how he escaped by losing himself in the rock
area, giving rise to an Indian legend of a "pale man swallowed by a rock and reborn as one of
their own." The Indians believed he wove enchantments on the area, but he explained that the rock
wove the spells. "When I was swallowed by the rock, I joined the many spirits who enchant this
place." The first well-documented explorations of this area did not begin until 1723 when the
Spanish intensified their efforts to colonize Texas.

vacation conversations:
self-improvement, slowing down, reasons not to try, society's demise, media manipulation, cannibalism phobias w food, how as we grow up we slowly lose our senses of imagination, the story of Job, how the careless or cruel treatment of our exes is not an indication of our competence or worth, government drug testing on soldiers, WWII, Hiroshima, Harryrodeo, types of pickles, types of soul patches, strength, how i am strong in tribulation but weak of self-esteem, how one can be feeble in spirit but tenacious in intellect, familiar with theory though unqualified in practice, fragile of mind, able of heart.

clumsy, some of us unconscious professors. each of us has so much to teach the other.
