When you walk do you sometimes pick up a rock and look at it? Maybe toss it into a nearby pond or lake. I know that I do.

Most people don’t think about the role rocks have made in our history considering the oldest known pictures and writings were made on rocks. I thought it was great that you connected the significances of rocks to different cultures such as Indigenous and Greek traditions. I’m glad that collecting rocks is almost a universal norm because I use to have a rock collection when I was a kid. I just thought some rocks were beautiful and mysterious.The rocks told a story without even having the language to do so. One quote that stood out to me the most was, ‘’Our history as people is tied to rocks no matter where we come from’’. I just like the way you worded that sentence because it’s so eloquent and thoughtful. I wanted to know what exactly is a rock beach because I have never heard that term used before. I can’t wait to read about your next adventure in New Zealand.
