Accessory De Rigueur

Anima Mundi Tarot ~ 4 of Coins

Caring for what you have. Or...in the case of vacation, always having the fashion accessory of the day in order to do so. Pocket baggies.

Billings Montana today, on the Yellowstone River. My folks were avid rockhounds and the bounty decorated the inside and outside of their home. I'm a collector. Don't know one rock from another, I pick up bling. We've progressed from if I can get them to the truck without getting caught they're mine, to Rob bringing pocket sized rocks to me. Progress! Yesterday I introduced him to breaking big glittery rocks to expose the real beauty inside. Houston, we're going to need a bigger box.

  1. Best Four of Pents post ever (including the baggie photo) :D.
    It has always amazed me the beauty found under our feet. You need an extra trailer to haul your bounty!

  2. I have snuck a couple off the Rocky Mountains.

  3. I have a pretty small place for my rocks. I also introduced him to the notion of culling...only the really special get to stay. I'll do that when he isn't looking.

    1. Makes me think of the Apollo 13 movie. The ship and crew had to return because of malfunction, having never made it to the Moon. The return trajectory had to be recalibrated because they did not have the weight of moon-rocks on the ship.

    2. I'd forgotten that part, but that is the movie where "Houston we have a problem" comes from :) They were so calm. So many years of training

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
