Rocks in the Neighborhood

One of the places I like to put rocks is on little walls like this. I was so happy to see that kids started painting rocks and adding them to this wall. There are almost twenty of them on there now. I put rocks places where a lawn mower wouldn’t run them over and possibly mess up the machine.

One of my neighbors goes to Montauk a lot. She’s been bringing me the most beautiful stones; as Kerfe says, it will keep me busy for a while.

I hope everyone is doing well and being careful. In my state (NJ) and Kerfe’s (NY) the cases have slowed down thanks to our governors Murphy and Cuomo. Places are opening up and requiring masks and social distancing. I feel I’m one of the fortunate ones: I’ve kept my job, get along pretty well with my spouse and daughter in quarantine and most of all that my pool has opened with restrictions. I’ve developed knee problems and swimming is the best thing for it. Sadly the three town pools are not opening (mine is private) and I feel badly for the children.

This too shall pass. Hope everyone has a good weekend. Nina

    Very cool about the rocks, Nina. There’s a rock painting group that paints leaves them here and there in this area as well.

    I’m glad you’re doing well. I never knew rock painting was such a thing. Derrick Knight posted some photos on his blog of painted stones that are tributes to care givers:

    I believe the good feeling of them attracts more, and then suddenly you have a whole chorus of happy-making rocks singing out. You are doing such a good thing here.

    Yay for kids and for conscientious governors (Wisconsin has one too)! Happy to know you’re managing well at home! Swimming is good for what ails me too. ^_^

    That is wonderful that others are joining in with the rock paintings! Happy to hear some of how you are surviving…things are just starting to get weirder here (Kingston, Ontario) with looser restrictions, more people in hospital and threats of fines just introduced (just before a weekend) for people not wearing masks locally (not a provincial or national requirement). Anyway…I am just venting… I always wear a mask at the grocery, but that’s my choice.

    I love your painted stones, Nina, and how wonderful that children are spontaneously adding to theirs to the wall. I love that! You’ve inspired creativity, fun, and community. We had a similar experience at the beach a couple of years ago. We made a little zen garden with multiple stacks of flat pebbles. My grandson was 5 and so worried that someone would knock them down when we went in for the night. When we came back in the morning, the garden had grown twice its size! Keep spreading the love and stay well. ❤
