On writing

The [neolithic] carvings themselves offered no clue, but lay mute in the morning sunshine. So, for want of anything better to do, I laid a page of my notebook over one of the carvings and traced it. On the rock, they looked almost cosmological. On my page, though, it looked like a fried egg.
