As I run my hand along the rough stone the wind whispers and the trees creek with suspense. I feel the cold air on my face as I search every crevice, every imperfection in the rock and suddenly feel a gap large enough for my finger to fit in. A loud scraping sound follows and something cold wets my hand...ink. I hear the crisp snap of rolled up paper and bend over to find it on the gravel rode, holding my cane close. I hear hurried foot steps about two feet away to the right and he wind suddenly picks up. The piece of parchment quietly floats away as I make one final attempt to grasp at the knowledge drifting away. I lose balance and fall hard on the rough gravel.
