Must run in the blood.

Post  Jeremy on Thu Aug 19, 2010 12:19 pm

Hi,
My wife and 13 yr old son went on a visit to see family friends in the Lake district.
On a walk around one of the lakes he spotted this rock. He got very excited and insisted in collected it for me. With some reluctance my wife did so.
On arriving home he gave me the rock, which my wife was still very bemused by. Suspect

It made my week, in fact it made my year. Very Happy
Not only is it a fine object stone, but Tom my son felt strongly enough to want to bring it home for me. Very Happy
I hope you see what he saw?



Now to make a dai.

I can see exactly what Tom saw! (*)
Good boy!
Fine pieces!


PS:... I cannot understand your wife, though.... We women sometimes.... Cool


edit:
(*) Not literally, but I mean that I can see the boy is talented with keen eyes.

Thanks for sharing, Jerry. My best friend died of cancer over 15 years ago & his mom sent their son (~ age 15) to stay with me & my significant other for awhile. We visited local rivers & his eye was extraordinary. Several of my favorite stones were collected with Mark, and we found stones with particular qualities that I've not equaled since. It is nice when this stone enthusiasm is shared across generations.

Morea! If you have stones in your reorganized sculpting studio, I hope you'll share some photos, here. Do you have any suiban that you've made supporting stones?

Enjoying the hunt.

Thanks Chris,
Tom is usually looking for fossils. I think I can beat that out of him, so he has more time for the viewing stones. Wink He enjoys the hunt.

Here are a few pictures of their trip. i wish i had gone with them now.
My wife is into coastal steering and wild swimming. She wouldn't miss the chance for a swim. That's her in the distance, scaring the wildlife. Twisted Evil




Tom just after he found the stone. Unfortunatly very out of focus.

An excellent human figure stone that he found for you Jeremy! He does have a good eye for it. I saw a masculine figure but now that you mention it ........
