The first post
of this on-line journal started with.....
"In the beginning there was girl who collected pebbles."
|Pebbles, 'All the most beautiful things are gathered by the tide.' print by Fréya Eté on Etsy, and lavender.|
Every time I reach the edge of the land my eyes are cast downwards. I crouch, I sift, I collect and I leave the beach with pockets a little heavier that when I first arrived.
A few months ago I received a package from one of my regular reader, the Lovely Mrs. L. She sent me some pebbles she had collected from the beach she walks in Queensland Australia.
This week I was delighted and surprised to find a package all the way from California, USA. A fellow pinner on Pinterest
commented on one of my pebble pictures and asked me if I would like some Californian pebbles. Of course I said yes! And true to her word they turned up in my little boîte postale on Tuesday!
I will just have to eat more toast and jam so I can clear some more jars for my expanding collection of immigrant pebbles!
