ROCKS: Do you pass by vendors selling rocks (crystals / minerals)? If so, I’d like you to stop and examine these items. Handling them is necessary to examine the refraction of light on and thru the rock. Of course, it is mostly crystals that are translucent enough to be seen into or thru. What about the shape, layers, crevices? Does it have any fossil designs?
I will pass by these displays, if I can be so disciplined, because 9 out of 10 stops results in my purchase of another rock. How about taking a walk and finding a nice rock. I bring those home also.
Why? What is this attraction? I think it is another recognition and appreciation of the beauty and glory of Mother Earth. Hold one of your rocks now (or find one to hold in the near future) and wonder upon it’s beauty. I would say simple beauty, but mostly it is not simple. Honor Mother Earth in this manner.
