Thousands of years ago a leaf
fell on the soft clay and seemed
to be lost. Bui last summer a
geologist, in his ramblings, broke
off a piece of rock with his ham
mer, and there lay the imare of
the leaf, with every line and every
vein and all the delicate tracerv
preserved in the slone through
those centuries. So the words we
speak and the things we do today
may seem to be lost, but in the
great final revealing the smallest
of them will appear.
