Pebbles In The Jar refers to the Aesop’s fable about a thirsty crow who needs to get a drink out of a jar that only has a small amount of water at the bottom. The crow eventually figures out that by filling the jar with stones, he can get the water level to rise so that he can quench his thirst.
I love myths, fables, fairy tales–anything that sneaks in a lesson while telling us a story. Especially an archetypal one. And I am a very visual person (if you’re curious how visual, go to www.chodos-irvine.com). Perhaps it is a bit of a stretch, but the metaphor is meant to imply that like the crow and the jar, we can try to get what we need using our own ingenuity, one stone at time.
