A Stone Synchronicity
Every summer I go out and try to dig out stones (and lots of petrified wood) that have been buried by wind, rain and whatever. The top is a pile that I dug out and the bottom in just a random shot of one of the many rocky areas in the yard.
I don't know what all those stones are, but I do know there is a lot of quartz, petrified wood, and much that looks like carnelian, some that looks like raw turquoise and rest I have no idea, except that they are not natural to the yard, especially since they are centralize in one area. The petrified wood I know did not come from this area, but I assume that a lot of the others did come from hikes around here. This area has tons of the most common rock I find -- quartz.
I have often wondered if the concentration of quartz in this canyon attracts UFOs and other esoteric phenomena. Well, that is not the point I wanted to make, but rather that I do think it is kind of a synchronicity that someone so attracted to stones ends up in a house with a yard full of them and I didn't at all know about them until after we moved in. It is almost like some kind of sign. A sign or what -- who knows, but maybe that I am suppose to continue with my first obsession which was a love of stones?
