my heart's in the garden

I read something recently to the effect that Mother Earth is ill, that her icy-cold chills make her shake and shiver and her melting fevers cause her to pant violently. Her tears are flooding and her rages destroying. She is trying to heal herself and I am so sorry that it seems to be at the cost of human life.

I want to go outside and somehow help her heal. You could say that my heart's in the garden today.

It's so true about mother earth! I think human are causing it for the earth. I too love heart shape rock and have been looking out for them - hugs Nat

Hi Nat -- this is my only heart-shaped natural rock -- one of my boys found it on private land in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado as he was harvesting and bundling rocks for work one college summer. I'm on the lookout now too! People who live near the beach find them regularly, I think, but I'm an inlander. How 'about you? xoxo

Ive picked afew up from the beach must admit, esp with heartish shapes within or on them, maybe a line of quartz or somethign like that.I even found a white one quite heart shaped that had a hole right thru it, but the severe snow sheared it through, leaving two halves.
So one found inland is a blessing Im sure lol
Thats an interesting way of explaining the ills that are befalling our world. Why arent more of us ashamed by what we do....or dont do.... to keep our world safe!

Lyn, well even though I'm not even remotely near a beach, I love hearing and seeing what people who do, find! The few times I've been in or at the edge of an ocean have been life-changing. Watched highlights of the wedding late last night. Wow!

The garden is a very good place for a heart...a growing space. I have a small heart shaped rock that my mother found on the beach. I felted red roving around it.

Hi Deb, oh, felting is such a great idea! Sort of a heart-cozy. Love that.

I have a collection of heart shaped rocks. Lately I've been finding them every time I go out. In fact, the other day I was going through my collection and decided that I needed to free some of them back in to the wild.

Is this rock really as big as it looks? It's beautiful!

Kathy, you lucky! This heart is, gosh I'm really guessing here, about 12" across, give or take. I love hearts, too!

Send me your address and I will send you an east yorkshire beach, heart stone and maybe also one of those with the holes in ...... that the elves used to practise their arrow skills on!
Am sure I did a blog entry about those, must track back and see if I can find it!

Lyn, OK! I'd love to see that post, too.
