And I'd like to remind you
Of something small
That the rock in this pocket
Could cause your fall
- Suzanne Vega
Do you end up with thousands of stones in your pockets too? I am continually being handed one or two as we make our way through the days.
Some are thrown in the river for the satisfying 'plonk' they make as they hit the Forth River.
Some are kept to be used in the bath.
Some are used as props in elaborate construction games.
Some go through the wash, highlighting that not all materials are meant to be 'stonewashed'
And some get painted...just because.
