A Whole Lotta Rocks and a Grateful Heart


Two days at a house on a beach
soaking up the sounds and rhythm of the waves


Walking barefoot in sand and water


 Marvelling at Mother Nature's artwork


Finding lines of stitch and....


....weathered holes


Marvelling at grey on grey textures


Discovering two rocks so different from the rest


Wondering why barnacles have started to grow on seaweed


Imagining the waves on stormy nights
carving their images on smooth rocks and ....


....pounding down to create seams and crevices


Thank you to Diane and Harold who gifted me this time
and
thank you to the golden who sat by my side and wanted so much to be petted.


Thank you to so many of you who loved the Rusty Pups
You raised us up with your beautiful words of sympathy.
And thank you Miranda for your beautiful rusty gifts
I will indeed wear them and think of my pups.

  4. i would have wanted to make crayon rubbings on some of those, and then probably got the paper all wet by a wave wanting to help.
