A rose stone journeys in the flow of the Hobart Rivulet, Tasmania, AU because I met Adrain as we waited for beers at a reception thrown by a British scientific publishing company at a Conference in Melbourne. He lives in Tasmania and told me flights there were pretty reasonable. A couple days had opened the following week before my return to the States. Why not go the Taz? Packing an overnight bag I noticed the rose stone sitting on the bedside table in the hotel room. I put it in my pocket on the way out the door to catch the overnight ferry to Devonport . . .
