It's the start of a new month here at Mirrorshards, and that means it's time for the Wisest Stone to share his insights with us all!
“You must learn patience,” said the Wisest Stone. “I will teach you the way of it.”
“Your lessons have always served me well,” said Taku. “I will listen.”
He waited for the Wisest Stone to speak, but no words came. Taku’s feet grew weary, and he squatted. Then his knees grew weary, and he lay upon the ground. The cold winds came, and the rain, and Taku shivered and endured. When the warm season returned and the water dried, Taku spoke: “I understand. Thank you for the lesson, o Wisest Stone.”
“Oh, are you still here?” said the Wisest Stone.
