Ever spot a heart-shaped rock on the trail?
My friend Becky the hiker sees heart-shapes wherever she walks: heart-shaped rocks on the trail, heart-shaped beach glass, stones and shell fragments by the shore. She’s even found two bowed trees growing toward each other, leaving a heart-shaped space between them.
Smart phone camera always at the ready, Becky has captured 80 or so stone hearts and heart-shapes over the last couple of years on her walks, jogs and hikes. She’s mulling over posting them on a web site or collecting them in a book with some inspirational prose.
Her son Huck and my son Daniel are best buds and I often take the two teens on hikes.
Recently Becky shared some of her heart images with me and can you guess what happened?
That’s right. On my next hike, I sighted a rock heart on the trail to Gaviota Peak.
Rock on, hike on, and a Happy New Year of hiking.
