I Am Stone Collector . . . Of Sorts
When I began writing this post, I had to ask myself, “What’s the difference between a rock and stone?” I admit that I had to call on Wikipedia, but there wasn’t anything there, or the ‘Net for that matter, that was definitive. My definition would be that a stone is smooth and a rock is not–and that’s my final answer!
I also admit that I’ve taken large slabs of stone from parks where I should not have removed anything that I didn’t bring in. Mea culpa, mea culpa, mea maxima culpa. I confess this in front of the world.
My enthusiasm to find the perfect stone for just a particular purpose gets the best of my better judgement. I have long slabs of stones for drain spouts, round ones for garden pot feet, bigger ones for hose guides, flat ones for benches, and round, flat, smooth ones for artwork (like the one above).
Whenever we go on vacation, I always have a pocket full of stones or shells. I just can’t help myself. What is it that you collect?
