If you take a trip anywhere and want to have a reminder of your visit there is no better way to do so than to collect rocks, and it’s cheap too! Okay, well maybe taking pictures is a better reminder but rocks can work too. Nearly every place you go will have some form of a rock that you can take home with you and add to your collection. The only thing is, you might want to find a way to mark your rock so you can remember where it came from. In the case of visiting several locations it might be hard to remember where your rock came from since most rocks kinda look alike. And from personal experience, you might want to think pebbles instead of boulders.
Caveat – make sure where you are taking a rock from is not illegal to do so, many national parks around the world do have laws against it – so in that case make today #Takeapictureofarockday instead 🙂 It’s still collecting!!!
How to celebrate – Start your rock collection. Remember that gold and silver are generally thought of as rocks as well. Find a way to mark your rocks so you know where they came from.
As we trudge on through our endless reasons to try and find a reason for living we come to Old Rock Day. I am honestly not sure why we should bother celebrating old rocks, we don’t really celebrate anything else that has value or aged wisdom. But okay, maybe we can find it in old rocks.
We’ve made rocks pets, worshiped them because they must have had a power of sorts somewhere in the past and well gosh.. they are just really, really fun to talk to. At least they don’t disagree with us! Some of them become even more valuable than we are since we too will one day turn into the fossils we seem to admire, so long as they give not opinion or share any experience.
Perhaps there is a reason, after-all, that people are generally thought to be dumb as rocks! I mean really, what can you say about a rock!?! And even if you could say something, why would you!?! But that said, we should honor rocks because, well… they have been around long than us and they will be around long after we are gone.
So you should spend today honoring rocks. Skip work, let congress out to roam the fields and maybe we will even find our next President, or Supreme Leader, under one of them! Since we often mimic rocks by sitting still and doing nothing about anything worth-while they do project our future.
How to celebrate – Take a rock to lunch. (They don’t eat much) Try not to rock the boat. Go get stoned. (Then take an IQ test but don’t be surprised when the rock scores higher than yourself.)
