My latest personal project has been hunting for stones on my walks and creating a rock garden with my finds -- which include quartz, various types of jasper, an occasional chip of petrified wood and more. I've been working with the rocks (seen in the following photos) a little every day for the past eleven days and have found the time spent doing so to be welcomingly therapeutic.
Rockhounding and gardening are quite effective for getting exercise, fresh air and adding balance and neutralization to lives heavy in work, technology and / or stress.
I love feeling the beneficial vibrations of the stones and arranging them in a zen-like way. This hobby has also provided a much-needed break from the activities surrounding my change in residence earlier this month and has been good physical therapy for my arm, which I had broken at the end of October.
I plan on continuing to work with the stones when time permits and will post more updates in this blog and on Instagram - when I have new progress and images to share.
I would love to see pictures of your rock gardens as well!
Peace and love,
