A man was selling stones outside the Lisbon castle, i asked him what made these stones so special? He replied that he had collected these stones from the banks of Targus River from all across the peninsula, their special composition of mud, water and lava enabled them to attract positive energy and change destiny of whoever owned them. I asked him if stones from the mighty Indus river could do the same? He said “No river is like Tagus”. I asked him if these stones had changed his destiny yet? He looked at me, smiled, and replied ‘not yet’. I smiled back and walked away.
