Asha'ille is undergoing a spelling reform and this page might not have been updated yet!

If you see many apostrophes, it's pre-reform. If you see î and only a few apostrophes, it's post-reform. — Arthaey

-->

David J. Peterson ran the LCC2 relay in the summer of 2007.

The Asha'ille text has been updated to reflect the spelling reform that occurred after the relay.

[0] The Stone That Spoke

[1] Many years ago, I walked along the lake shore. [2] I kicked a stone, and [3] I heard something say: [4] "Hey! I didn't like that at all!" [5] I lifted the stone and asked: [6] "These stones can speak, can they?"

[7] It answered: [8] "Yes, all these wise stones can speak; I remembered how!"

[9] Then I asked: [10] "Do you want to tell me your life story?"

[11] It answered: [12] "Do you really want to hear it? [13] If you say 'yes,' then I will tell it to you."

[14] I began to feel angry when it answered like that, [15] so I threw the stone into the lake. [16] I didn't see it again for many months.
