Love is where you find it
On this trip, along with one rock my parents picked up in Ouray, Colorado, I have started a heart-shaped rock collection. I have a whopping 4 rocks right now. This led me to farmgirlfare, which is a blog I read because it makes my heart sing. No real information, just a beautiful daily picture from the author's Missouri farm. She has a few dozen heart rocks. And through her comment page, I found Rick Ruggle's site.
Ever find something and think, "I want to do exactly that!" That was my immediate reaction. Not from the monetary gain point of view--although I've put the calendar on my Christmas list--but from the fact that a collection of natural heart pictures is wonderful, quirky, and just like me.
The white granite heart is more heartshaped the way I depict it above, but on the "back" of it, completely unnoticed until Mike pointed it out, is a natural cruciform. Talk about examen.
At Daniels Summit Lodge, where we stayed in Utah on our trip, there was a framed picture called "The Life of an Aspen." It was simply a collection of 10 identically-sized aspen leaves. The first was lime green, moving to darker green, spotty yellow, bright yellow, brown, and finally the famous skeletal aspen leaf appearance. Simple, gorgeous, and just like me. Except mine would be oak.
