The Eye of the Beholder -- or Creator

Mick:  Wow, CAM, that's a beautiful rock pile you're making.
CAM (indiginantly):  I am not MAKING a ROCK pile.  I am MAKING a piece of ART!


CAM has a rock collection.  She doesn't call it her rock collection, though, just her COLLECTION.  We have a little tile-mosaic-topped table in a nook in our living room -- we got the table ages ago in the garden section of Target and used it in an old apartment years ago to drop keys and such on when we came in -- and it's become her COLLECTION table.  It's precious to her, and consequently, precious to us.  And we have rocks from everywhere we go ... If I am not aware that she took any, I often discover them when I take the laundry out of the washer and there's a little collection of rocks and pebbles on the bottom of the basin.

  1. I knew I liked CAM. I still collect rocks from the beach (and also leave them in my pockets to be discovered by MYSELF in the dryer).
