|11:42 am - Today|
This photo of a crystal, gorgeously saturated with color, makes me think of my dad's house.
He is a lover of rocks (a geologist by trade), and in several places in his house are displays of his favorites of the boxes he's collected. In the barrister bookcase inherited from his father, behind clear glass, is a geode like the one pictured -- not as colorful, but just as jagged and cool.
A year or two ago he gave me a small brown quartz piece shot with mica. It would serve as a worry-stone, but instead I display it on my entryway table.
Dad's having a tough recovery, though, and maybe it's time to run my thumb over the sharp edges and think healing thoughts.
Hope your day is a good one, and hope you have totems of those you love close to hand.

[hugs] for you, and good thoughts for your dad.
Thank you, A, thank you. Hugs.
Hoping for things to go much better for your dad--he sounds like a wonderful man.
(My cataracted eyes read "brown quartz shot with mice" and I was having problems with the image...a mouse gun? Thankfully I reread.)
He is a good father and, while we don't always agree, a good man indeed.
(Eeek for cataracts, but at least they can be fixed...)
Thanks and peace to you.
