“When a king reigns it is thanks to the people;
when a river sings it is thanks to the stones”
So, I paint rocks when I’m anxious. I got into it after finding one myself on a really dark day for me (it was an orange rock with the word “Courage” in black letters). I found that it helped me a lot more than seeking solace therapy in my refrigerator. I hide my painted rocks around town and let people find them. Sometimes I hear back (I write my e-mail on them), sometimes I don’t. The ones I’ve found have brightened my day (or night – although the night itself is calming for me). It took me 3 months to finish the above set, because I can’t draw for shit. It’s a gift for a co-worker who’s a fan of those boys. Not sure how he’ll take it, but they’re in a neat little box, with some of that colored crinkly filling paper, with a message that reads, “Your very own rock band :::cough:::”. And they ARE river rocks 🙂
What hobbies do you have? How do they keep you sane?
