A Gift of Painted Rocks

Three painted rocks on a bench, including a drawing of the bluebird of happiness.

One never knows when the bluebird of happiness will alight. This collection, spotted on a wooden bench along Center Drive in front of the Clinical Research Center on Sept. 26, could have been left by accident, perhaps forgotten by someone, or might have been left deliberately to enchant. Does motive even matter when the result is enchantment?
