Studying the ring, I just realized that the heart isn't, as I thought, a patch of oxidized silver: it's a heart-shaped hole cut in the silver, with the underside of the rock showing through. This feels like a teensy message from the universe, one I need to decode. Open up that armor and let the heart show through? Or, as Buddhist writer Joanna Macy would say, "The heart that has broken open can contain the universe?"
Whatever I decide it's trying to tell me, it's neat, and makes me like the ring even more.
