And so 2017 is coming to an end
It was the year that brought our precious
grand daughter Stevie Ray
into this world.
It was the year I turned Seventy
Have to say this was the first birthday
that shook me!
It was the year Grand Daughter
and what a fascinating age that is.
It was the year son Brett found his Amber
Outside of our family circle though
it has been a year of shocking changes
that have whirled around the world.
For me it has been the year of the stone
The year of finding stones both beautiful and ugly
The year of learning to notice just the smallest
and most subtle markings in nature.
I hope I have learned something.
I am finishing the year with a black full stop.
that I have held in my hands for years and years.
A fossil with markings so subtle they don't even
show up in the photo.
And now I will probably spend a good part of 2018
to put them all together!
Happy New Year Everyone
and Thank you for dropping by
Through this process
I have made so many friends
and I love having those relationships.
