in baskets and in bowls, on sills and on desks, i have rocks. rocks from beaches, rocks from gardens, rocks from other peoples trips. rocks worn smooth by water long gone. rocks jagged and sharp and shaped like hearts. a rock from the ancestral home in ireland. another from a volcano. salt from the great salt lake. and a long succession of duxbury rocks. heres my most recent acquisition - found just this morning right by my foot in the driveway. sparkly quartz among the gravel.

So sorry I didn't bring a rock from St. Maarten. I forgot your love of rocks. :-( I hope the shell I found will be a happy substitute.
