Are you a pebble?

A friend left this comment on my blog, which contained this sentence “I started thinking about the millions of stones/pebbles, how each was different, very different & yet if you lift your eyes the beach looks golden & could be a continuous strip of bronzed sand”.   And that got me thinking, I bet each of those pebbles considers itself to be an individual with its own unique character and history.  It has its own story of how it got there.  It was part of something bigger.  Bit by bit, over time, it is changed by its environment; its rough edges are abraded by time and tide.  And yet, each pebble is part of something bigger… the beach. 

Are we that different really…?

  1. Love this. I wrote something for one of my talks recently.
    We are not one drop, but part of an ocean
    Not one blade of grass, but part of a field
    Not one grain of sand, but part of a beach.

    Lovely blog – I retweeted you

  2. Thanks very much Lizzi… we gotta a meme going … 🙂
