Stone swirls...

If you look closely at my inspiration board, you will see this picture on it. I am totally fascinated by stones and rocks arranged in patterns.


When I lived in Hawaii, one of the walks we went on regularly would take us along a path that had gravel on the edges. In one spot, some anonymous stranger would arrange the rocks into huge spirals and shapes..I would always have to stop and walk the spiral, or stare at the patterns.


The other day, I was reading Altered Thoughts, and read about the World Beach Project.


Now I have this wild desire to go to a beach, and make my own random act of art.



Of course, with winter coming on, I might be too much of a wuss to get all wet and cold like that.



But it might be worth it.
