Walking Rocks?

Query: When I was in Death Valley earlier this year, I saw some enormous 750-pound rocks that appear to travel across the desert on their own. I remembered your article about rock tortoises, and wondered if that’s what these rocks could be?

Corn of Plenty (Part 4 of 4): A Field Guide by Dr. Midas Welby

Corns of the Air: Air-corns utilize their horns for jousting, playing tic-tac-toe, and spearing food in mid-flight. Air-corns often lurk undetected in trees, wood piles, and rain gutters. When bored, they use their horns to ring the doorbells of unsuspecting humans. When the door begins to open, the air-corn flies away.

Going On Hiatus

December 6, 2014: I am loving college, but I have to admit, I’m overwhelmed.

Pine Cone Feeders

A Present For Imaginaries: When winter comes, I get concerned about providing extra shelter from the elements for Imaginaries. Recently, I read about people who build wildlife brush shelters out of branches and plants in their yards, and thought this was a great idea.

Room For Many Opinions

February 4, 2014: This month, we have two different postings from two learned individuals who disagree about the nature of the unicorn (see Annals and Field Notes).

In my years working with Iranigami, I have found that we frequently disagree over a great many things, from the proper name of a particular species of dragon to the best way to approach a jackalope. But I have also learned that there is always room for differences of opinion, as long as we all agree upon our common purpose – to preserve, protect and defend the Imaginaries of our world.

What we know about Imaginaries is far less than what we don’t know. The Imaginaries of the world are often elusive, secretive, and hidden from view, and what we do know may be contradictory or incomplete. We didn’t know until just now that wapaloosies can use cellphones. Imagine what else we don’t know!

It helps to remember that yesterday’s facts are today’s fallacies, that knowledge is the best antidote to ignorance, and that the best way to get along with one another is always to keep an open mind. - XAX, 236th Keeper of Iranigami
