Final Thoughts About Rock Hunting

Gold and Sir and China rock collecting

So, in a nutshell, I may still be able to retrieve another few hundred rocks for display here, and maybe find a few more along the way. But I'm not as young and brave as I used to be. Arent we all? I look at some of the ravines and cliffs I once scaled, knowing I couldn't do that now. And with all the limitations and private property now, less than friendly people, it looks less encouraging to take up this hobby. Its really interesting that a lot of these images of recent history were made maybe millions of years beforehand. Some of them look very religious. Some look very incidental, coincidental, and comical. I hope you'll view these rocks and test your imagination. Like looking for patterns in clouds or anything else, if you ask 10 people, you get 10 different views. I've been told I have a vivid imagination, that I see things that arent there. I think we all have done that at one time or another. I had focus and I was looking for images in rocks. Some people would find things I never would, depending on their interests, hobbies, and profession, etc. Some rocks I never would have found without the right light, or their being at the perfect height or distance or viewing angle. I used to smoke and drink lots of coffee and Coke. I don't anymore and I don't look at clouds much. When I was a kid there was a game called Camoflage. Each turn they would remove lines and soon you could see the object. I wasn't very good at it. Just average. Also there was probably a lot of luck involved.

Well, enjoy my site and we will see if we open a display room here in the San Francisco Bay area. Nothin' beats seein' the real thing unaltered. I'd love it if there was a rock store nearby, or if there is interest in a museum. Where? Or if I just break the collection up and sell it on eBay. Anyhow, I should get my 15 minutes of fame. Maybe even 30 minutes. Enjoy! Just remember - A rock should have lots more room for error or imperfections. It was made by nature and not a person with high-tech tools.
