Mary https://cactuscatz.com/sabi-saturday/sabi-saturday-week-20/ got me thinking rocks, and while hers were all shiny and polished, mine are…not.
The chunk of history above is from a small creek behind Muncy Elementary School in Muncy, PA. My husband and daughter peeled off a layer and you can see some shells:
This fossil has been in our garage for at least 14 years. Is it Devonian era? I don’t know, but I keep it on a shelf, so it is in the now era, Cenozoic.
A couple of years ago my husband and I went hiking in Nathan Bedford Forrest State Park near Nashville, TN and picked up a few cool rocks, which are nestled in a molded piece of styrofoam that looks like it was made for cool rock storage, but actually came from a patio furniture box. I do, however, feel the reuse of the styrofoam is a great example of sabi or repurposing even if it is definitely not beautiful or valuable.
