The Gemstone is a manual and textbook on wonder and inspiration. It must be used as a tool, in tandem with wayfaring; which is a special kind of walking, actually. It was writ only for a few souls; none of them average. This book is fated for--at best--a famous obscurity.
Now one must be in love to properly follow the story in this book; in love with some other, or better yet, in love with life.
