Believe it or not, i've been washing rocks. Boulders, i mean, ranging in size from beach balls to big double Swiss balls. The excavator unearthed several glacial erratics, which hadn't seen the light of day in thousands of years.

One granite boulder is fine-grained, smooth, and nearly blue. Another has layers of quartz "icing" in between thing layers of granite "cake." And still another exfoliates large grains of quartz "salt" well mixed with smaller-grained biotite "pepper."

I'll place these boulders (1 cubic yard = 1 ton) along my woodland walks for interest.

We want to anchor our mindfulness practice into our daily lives. We do this by practicing sitting meditation as our foundational practice. During the day, we can practice walking, standing, or driving meditation as well as showering, dish-washing, and tooth-brushing practice.

I practice walking meditation on my woodland paths, nodding at the boulders i meet there.
